The truth is that insurance companies thrive by minimizing settlements. They tend to start low with their offers. An experienced attorney can leverage experience, knowledge and resources to compel the insurance company to increase the offer.
Here are three techniques that we use to build strong car, truck and motorcycle crash cases designed with fair compensation in mind:
Investigating The Motor Vehicle Accident
We take great care in thoroughly reviewing the auto wreck. We do this not only to find clear evidence of negligence on the part of the other driver, but to make certain that no other sources of compensation are missed. For example, an investigation may reveal that a defective auto part played a role in the accident, potentially opening up another claim against the manufacturer which could lead to additional compensation.
Working With Experts
Depending on the nature of the case, we may work with a variety of experts. We may bring in experts to help us prove the other driver’s negligence, which will strengthen the case. We may also bring in medical experts who can help us understand the severity and lasting impact of the injuries, and who can serve as expert witnesses to testify to the severe nature of the injuries and explain why a substantial compensation offer is critical to ensuring that all future medical costs are covered.
Taking Your Case To Trial
We prepare every case for trial, even though we know that the majority of car wreck cases will be resolved with a settlement. Ultimately, we use our trial skills and careful preparation as leverage in negotiation. The idea is to show the insurance company that we are serious about getting the appropriate amount of compensation for our client. We want our opponent to know that, if an acceptable offer is not made, we are ready and willing to argue the matter in front of a judge and jury.
