Negotiating Compensation in a Personal Injury Case
Many cases can be settled prior to going to court; however, when a case does go to trial, you need an aggressive trial lawyer with a successful track record to represent you. Any settlement offered to you without legal representation may be a much lower figure than you would receive with a lawyer's assistance. Insurance companies are always watching "the bottom line" they are willing to pay. They will often attempt to pay out the lowest possible amount, operating on a bad faith principle. Promises made in the beginning are often much higher than insurance companies are ever willing to pay, leaving you between a rock and a hard place as soon as you're actually in need of their help.
When navigating the legal system on your own, your case may be denied, delayed or settled for much less than the value you desired. Protect yourself from further loss and contact us to discuss your case before accepting an offer. Sometimes, just the act of having a strong lawyer at your side can be enough for the insurance companies to give you the respect you deserve. When they respect you and understand that you mean business, it is much more likely that you will be able reach a settlement outside of court. However, if such a settlement cannot be reached, we are more than willing to do whatever is needed to work towards getting you the desired outcome.
