Get Out From Behind the 8 Ball

Jan 25, 2017 | Personal Injury

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m really behind the 8 ball here?” It’s a billiards reference that most commonly refers to a situation where you don’t have a clear shot at what you’re aiming for. However, there’s another way of looking at the phrase that pertains to personal injury law, in which case being behind the 8 ball is all about missed opportunities.

In billiards, the best players aren’t those who can sink the most difficult shots but rather those who can consistently set themselves up for easy shots and therefore run the table. It’s called “playing shape.” A good personal injury attorney does the same thing for their clients. They look at a case systematically, from start to finish, so the desired result is obtained more often than not. They do that by understanding the process, identifying what your claim is worth, and building a case to justify maximum compensation for your injuries. An experienced Indiana personal injury attorney never finds himself or herself behind the 8 ball, because they’ve planned every shot in advance.

If you’ve been injured, give us a call today for a free, no obligation consultation. Our experienced Indiana personal injury lawyers have years of experience maximizing Indiana accident claims, and we’re ready to do the same for you. Contact us today.
