An “easy” case (for example, think of a child being run over by a drunk driver) can be quickly settled by a rookie or inexperienced lawyer. There are not many of these easy cases. Anyone can settle an easy case (as compared to trying a less obvious case to a jury, to a verdict).

So, the lawyer you should hire for your own personal injury or insurance case is the one who has run the gauntlet and won jury trials, particularly in cases with an “unpopular” client where the deck was stacked against them, and cases where the opposing party was not a drunk driver and was otherwise presentable in court.

Jim Gigax has successfully represented unpopular parties such as illegal immigrants and insurance companies in jury trials, so your case, while still very challenging, won’t start with the opposition already two touchdowns ahead.

Watch: Animation created to for trial and settlement of a catastrophic
ski slope injury in Aspen, for $3,225,000. Holding unsafe skiers accountable makes skiing safer for everyone.

A significant settlement encourages safer skiing. A 19 year old Aspen skier did not look before he skied off of a ledge. The skier launched a 360 degree turn before making sure the area below was clear. The skier, who was moving at least 35 miles per hour, landed on a 63 year gentleman skiing below. This gentleman, who was a practicing medical professional, suffered a closed head injury, a severely injured shoulder, and a destabilized cervical neck fracture. This gentleman’s medical skills, and livelihood, and quality of life, were taken from him. Jim Gigax went all out for this gentleman and hired the best expert witnesses, including consulting engineers who produced this animation. The case was settled four months before trial for $3,225,000.
