Personal injury cases require experienced and trial-tested attorneys. Personal injury cases also most often involve insurance companies. Insurance companies make their profits by ensuring that the claims paid out are less than premiums paid in. This involves an inherent incentive for a company to pay less than a claim is worth. Our first priority in handling a personal injury case is to lighten the load on our client. Often times medical bills are streaming in and the insurance adjuster is calling. We step in and handle this for the client so the client can focus on his or her health, treatment, and daily life. We carefully review reports, review medical records, and interview witnesses in order to fully evaluate the facts. We work with experts in various fields, from medicine to accident reconstruction, in order to ensure our clients’ interests are protected.
Depending on the type of claim and consistent with our clients’ wishes, we will generally attempt to settle the case before considering a lawsuit. If a settlement offer is acceptable to the client and the client can avoid the cost of trial, the case will settle. Sometimes a lawsuit is necessary, however. We ensure our clients are fully informed about the costs and risks of trial before a decision is made whether or not to file a legal action.
