TAKE YOUR NEXT STEP

You Need A Plan

The insurance company or corporation has a plan. You need one too. We know the actions to take and the choices to make.
Step 1: The Demand Letter
This is the formal letter that you’ll send as the plaintiff to the paying insurance company. It will outline the legal claims of your case and provide a factual summary of what happened. It will also include a demand for compensation from the insurance company. The demanded amount will be based on the value that was previously calculated. The insurance company may offer a lower amount, dispute the claim, or accept the demand and settle your claim. If the insurance company will not offer a fair settlement or disputes the claim, your lawyer may then file a formal complaint in court.
Step 2: Filing A Complaint
If the insurance company will not agree to settle your claim for a reasonable amount, your attorney may then file a civil complaint in court. The complaint is a legal document that outlines your legal claims and initiates the formal legal process. Once the complaint is drafted and filed, it will need to be served on the defendant and the insurance company. The defendant will then have time to file his or her answer to your complaint. The case will then proceed to the discovery process.
Step 3: Discovery
Discovery in a personal injury lawsuit is the phase during which both parties must exchange evidence with each other. You and the defendant will be required to share the evidence so that there will not be any surprises if the case goes to trial. Discovery may include processes to elicit information, including interrogatories and depositions. As more information is developed during the discovery process, many cases settle without going to trial.
Step 4: Settlement
Your attorney and the defense lawyer will evaluate the evidence that they receive to assess the strength of your claim. Your lawyer will continue to negotiate with the insurance company and will inform you about any settlement offer that is extended. If you receive a fair settlement offer and agree to accept it, it will be presented to the court for approval. Once a settlement agreement is reached, your claim will be over. The insurance company will pay the agreed amount to your attorney, and he or she will give you a check after subtracting the expenses and legal costs.
Step 5: Trial
If you are unable to settle with the insurance company, your case will go to trial. Your trial will be held before a judge or jury. The judge or jury will hear the evidence that is presented by both sides and will evaluate it under the law before reaching its decision. Your attorney will help you to prepare for trial. If the jury reaches a verdict in your favor, the insurance company may pay the ordered amount. However, it may also file an appeal, making the process even longer.
