What are the steps in a personal injury claim?


Steps in a Personal Injury ClaimWe had a client come into our office who was involved in a personal injury matter and they wanted to know what the steps of the case would entail. We make sure, first, that our client receives proper medical treatment. We want to make sure that they’re healing properly and that they see any specialists they need to see. Once our client is done with treatment, then we give a demand to the insurance company. That is when we supply the insurance company with all of the medical records, medical bills, and outline a settlement demand. The insurance company typically has 30 days to make an initial offer. Once that initial offer is submitted to our office, we determine whether it’s reasonable or not. If it’s reasonable, we can begin the negotiation process. If it’s not reasonable, then we should file a lawsuit on behalf of our clients. Sometimes it takes filing a lawsuit in order to make these insurance companies make fair offers.
