Our Lawyers Can Help Obtain Important Evidence to Prove Your Case

After an accident, your main priority should be taking care of yourself, getting medical care from a qualified, competent medical professional, keeping a record of everything that pertains to your personal injury claim, including a detailed summary of your symptoms, medical treatment, etc. That is why you should consider having a personal injury attorney handle your car accident injury claim. By the time you reach our office, you will most likely have already notified your insurance company, arranged for your vehicle’s repair or replacement, and started medical treatment. After it is determined that you do indeed have a viable case and have formally hired our firm to represent your interests by signing a contingency fee agreement, our initial action will most likely be to send a letter of representation to the defendant or defendant’s insurance carrier. We will then begin to compile evidence to support your personal injury claim, arranging for an  investigation, if necessary. Here is a brief list of some of the important evidence we usually try to obtain:

• A copy of the police accident report or incident report
• Photos from your accident and statements of witnesses to your accident
• A transcript of the statement that you provided to your insurance company (if applicable)
• The limits of coverage of the defendant’s insurance policy (if applicable)
• All documents required to substantiate your loss of income due to accident-related injuries, as well as copies of pertinent insurance policies,
• Property damage invoices and other information/documents specific to your case and circumstances.
• Copies of all records and bills relating to your medical treatment Settlement Process in Personal Injury Cases

The settlement process is usually initiated when you reach a level of maximum medical improvement which means that your medical treatment has plateaued, and your injury is not expected to progress much further from its current state. In cases where you have not yet reached maximum medical improvement but the statute of limitations to file your claim is approaching. Initially, we may request that your treating physician prepare a written medical report or final report. In most instances, the doctor will be asked to respond to specific questions and requests in order to assess your diagnosis, prognoses, form of medical treatment and/or procedures, and evaluate any plans for future treatment or surgeries and the costs of such treatment or surgeries. After review, we will determine what an appropriate settlement value should be and relay the information to you. The next step is the preparation of a settlement demand package or letter.

Prepare a Settlement Demand

After we determine the appropriate settlement value of your case, our team will prepare a settlement demand letter or package and present it to the defendant’s insurance adjuster in an effort to settle your personal injury claim without the necessity of litigation. If the statutory time limit for filing a lawsuit is approaching, documents necessary to protect the applicable statute of limitations will be filed with the court. This will begin the formal litigation process. Every law firm has their own style of demand letter or package and there are many factors that go into preparation of a settlement demand package. The primary goal is to provide the defendant’s insurance company with a complete and accurate picture of the effects of your injury and how it has impacted your life. Of course, medical treatment records and bills also help support the settlement letter as it is proof of the expenses you have incurred in order to recover from your injuries. Remember that it is your right to be informed about your case and if you have any questions regarding the value of your claim or the settlement process, our team is always available to discuss your personal injury case.
