What is the process for pursuing a personal injury claim?

  1. Put the at-fault party’s insurance company on notice that you intend to file a claim as soon as possible.
  2. Consult with a Personal Injury Attorney about the facts of your case.
  3. Your Personal Injury Attorney will investigate your case and choose the best course of action in pursing your claim. (by reviewing the crash report, the accident scene, photographs, witness testimony, medical records and bills, your employment history and earning power, and more. When appropriate, your attorney should collaborate with accident reconstruction experts, medical experts and other experts in a variety of fields depending on the circumstances of your accident and injuries. Your attorney should also examine the possible defenses of the opposing party and determine liability.)
  4. Your Personal Injury Attorney will send a Demand Package to the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. This involves a demand for settlement, including a demand letter outlining your case, including liability and damages (injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of life’s enjoyment and future medical care). The letter is then often reviewed by the opposing party, be it an individual, business and/or insurance company. In response to the letter, the opposing party will generally either reject the demand, make a counteroffer or accept it.

    If your case does not settle, your attorney will file a lawsuit on your behalf.
