Who says that the character of your client isn’t going to make a difference in a case, or the severity of the crash scene itself as recalled by eye witnesses (who aren’t always the most credible in remembering the details as the actual scene happened) isn’t going to change the mind of the insurance company about when and for how much to settle, or whether or not the particular severity of your client’s injuries may have an impact on the final judgement of the insurance company about whether or not to settle or prepare the case for trial?
