Dealing with the physical and financial repercussions of being involved in a serious accident can be a bewildering experience.
If you’ve recently been seriously injured in a car accident, you may be looking for answers to some of these common questions asked about the car accident lawsuit process.
How does the process of pursuing an injury claim work?
The process typically begins with obtaining a statement from your doctor concluding that you have obtained the best recovery possible, which is called your maximum medical improvement. This allows us to assemble a comprehensive demand package including pertinent items like:
- Medical expenses
- Medical records
- Medical prognosis
- Lost income
- Proof of negligence
- Other important documents
This package is used as we attempt to reach an appropriate settlement with the insurance company as we begin the negotiation process.
Will my claim be going to court?
In many cases, our focused, aggressive car accident lawyers are able to reach a fair settlement without ever filing a lawsuit.
In other circumstances, however, if we are not able to reach a settlement with the insurance company through negotiation alone, pursuing a lawsuit is discussed. It’s important to note that not all accident claims justify an actual car acciden lawsuit, and not all lawsuits need to go to trial.
What should I do while my case is being pursued?
It is important to focus on your recovery while your case is progressing.
Be sure to follow your doctor’s recommendations and pursue the treatment and therapy. In addition to being necessary to recovering from your accident, this is also an important part of documenting your injuries, and it is important to keep your injury lawyer up to date on how your treatment is going.
