Typical Personal Injury Case – What To Expect

Typical Personal Injury ClaimCurious about what a typical personal injury case looks like? Here’s a brief snapshot:

1️⃣ Incident Occurs: Whether it’s a car accident, slip and fall, or dog bite, you have been injured in an incident causing an injury.

2️⃣ Legal Consultation: We will review your case, discuss potential outcomes, and advise on the best course of action. It’s important to note that we do not bill hourly or request a retainer – this consultation is completely free. Our fee is contingent on recovering a settlement for you.

3️⃣ Start Medical Treatment: After meeting with us, it’s time for you to focus on your medical treatment and getting better after the accident. We make sure that the correct parties are paying for your medical bills, that insurance claims are filed correctly, that any liens are documented, and that all necessary parties are involved.

4️⃣ Finish Medical Treatment: Whether it’s weeks or months, you let us know when you finish all medical treatment related to the incident. We collect your medical records and bills, and submit claims to the correct insurance companies. At this point, we include requests for compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

5️⃣ Negotiation: In most cases, we are able to reach a settlement through negotiation with the insurance company or responsible parties. This means we likely will not even have to file a lawsuit.

6️⃣ Litigation: If a fair settlement isn’t possible, your case may proceed to litigation. However, there is still a good chance a settlement can be reached before a trial ever occurs.

7️⃣ Resolution: Whether through settlement or trial, the goal is for us to achieve fair compensation for your injuries and losses suffered.

Throughout the journey of a personal injury case, having a dedicated legal team by your side can make all the difference. Personal injury cases can get extremely complicated, and insurance companies know this. They will try to take advantage of you, and we know their tricks. If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, don’t hesitate to seek the help you deserve.
