Most medical negligence cases settle, at least the ones that we handle. And the reason for that is when we do our intake decisions, when we investigate your medical negligence case, we make sure that you have strong, solid grounds to pursue a medical negligence case. We make sure that we have some of the best experts around the country who are going to testify on your behalf and against the doctor or hospital or other medical care providers. With regard to cases I handle, and with regard to cases that Colson Hicks Eidson handles, most of the cases settle.

However, we’re a trial firm. I’m a trial lawyer. I make my living trying cases, and the other side knows that we’re not scared to try a case in the event that there isn’t a fair offer made.
