The Poole and Kane Personal Injury Philosophy
What Is Our Personal Injury Philosophy?
The answer to that question is from a famous Theodore Roosevelt quote: “Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick.”
For some people, the thought of personal injury conjures up pictures of old white men on billboards with baseball bats in their hands. They want you to know that when it comes to your claim, they play “hardball.” Or maybe you think of the now famous line from our friends at Saiontz & Kirk — “If you have a phone, you have a lawyer.” A new commercial is now airing where an attorney refers to himself as the “DC Hammer,” implying that unlike other attorneys he will “hammer” the insurance company.
Poole & Kane’s goal is to never take on these kinds of artificial personas in order to attract personal injury clients. Bruce Poole and A.J. Serafini love their work and care greatly about all personal injury clients, and will do whatever we can to make sure that our clients are compensated for their losses. We like to our lead from Teddy Roosevelt, and negotiate with the insurance companies with the first and primary goal of resolving each personal injury case prior to trial. Bruce and A.J. know that litigation is a painful and messy experience that is rarely enjoyable for a client.
However, if the insurance company is unwilling to fully compensate a Poole & Kane client, we are more than ready to wield the “big stick” and go into litigation mode with all guns blazing. On the other side of the spectrum there are some attorneys who dread the idea of litigation. Word gets around quick in the legal community that an attorney is afraid of taking a case to trial. We believe that to truly represent the client’s interests, you have to be willing and ready go to battle. And when we have gone to battle, Poole & Kane has been very successful our clients.
The client must come first.
