When you’ve been injured, you want to get paid as quickly as possible. You need the money. You want to get your legal case behind you and move forward with your life. But fair settlements take time, and if you rush the process, you will short-change yourself and your future. You need the full value of your claim. Compensation that will pay all of your medical bills, both existing and future. And you need a strong case that has been thoroughly investigated so the insurance company knows you can win your personal injury lawsuit in court and will be motivated to offer you fair compensation.
Whether you were injured in a car wreck, slip, and fall, or another type of accident, we need to thoroughly investigate what happened, how and why and who is to blame. Simply going on your word won’t hold up in court. Even though most cases are settled before going to trial, we have to be fully prepared to take your case to trial in order to negotiate a fair settlement.
Preparing a Full-Value Demand Includes Completing Your Medical Treatment
We also have to demand the full value from the very beginning. It takes time to determine what your injuries will truly cost in the years going forward. To do that, we need you to complete your medical treatment if at all possible. You will not be able to go back and ask for more if you discover that your injuries are going to cost more than you thought. In some cases, treatment will be ongoing for years, and we must move forward before treatment is complete.
