How does the process of a personal injury claim work? Will I need to go to court?

The process begins with a final report from your doctor outlining your injuries with information concerning your best recovery possible, also known as your maximum medical improvement. This places us in a position to determine a comprehensive demand package that will consist of:

  • proof of negligence
  • medical records
  • medical prognosis
  • medical billing
  • lost wages
  • additional pertinent information

This package is then sent to the insurance company, at which point the process of negotiation begins. If we are able to reach a settlement by negotiating with the insurance company, it may not be necessary to file a lawsuit.

Otherwise, filing a lawsuit for your case will be discussed with our legal team. Not all cases require the filing of a lawsuit, and it is often unnecessary to proceed to a trial.

Do I need to speak with the insurance companies about my accident?

You should not speak with any representative from an insurance company under any circumstances. In the event that you are receiving phone calls from an insurance provider, simply inform them that you have retained counsel and provide them with our name and contact information. Remember, any information that you share with the insurance company will be used to their advantage, not your own.
