Insurance companies are large organizations that try to protect their bottom lines and save money. After a car accident, they are supposed to pay for your losses; however, often they will try to settle a claim for the least amount possible. Your personal injury attorney will negotiate with the insurance company to get you the most money possible to cover your damages.

The Demand Letter

When you meet with an attorney at Begum Law Group Injury Lawyers, they will listen to your story and gather information about how much money your case is worth. The value of your case depends on past medical expenses, expected future medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and other losses that you experience.

Once your attorney determines how much money you need to cover your losses, they will send a demand letter to the insurance company. This letter details how much money you are willing to settle the claim for and what would be fair for both sides.

In most cases, the insurance company will reject the demand issued by you and your attorney. Your attorney will have to take next steps to further negotiate a fair outcome for you.

Communication With the Insurance Company’s Lawyers

Insurance companies have teams of lawyers, and they will spend money to avoid paying out on claims. Sometimes they will drag out a claim so that it is time consuming and expensive. Our goal is to push through a claim quickly and get the most money possible. We may write letters to or call the insurance company’s lawyers to directly talk to them about the validity of your losses.

The insurance company’s lawyers may try to avoid our contact or delay the claim in some cases. That’s why it’s important to be diligent in reaching out. We know how to reach the insurance company’s lawyers and prove to them that your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages are significant.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurance company refuses to give you a fair settlement, we may have to file a lawsuit. This is often part of the negotiation process as well. Filing a personal injury lawsuit sends a message to the insurance company that you are serious. Although we are often able to avoid trial, we are not afraid to take an insurance company to court, if necessary.

Negotiation at Mediations

Many personal injury cases go to mediation. This is a type of meeting where both parties come together and discuss the validity of the claim and how much it is worth. If we go to mediation, we will argue our side, negotiating with the insurance company to get you the most money possible.

Preparing for a mediation is similar to preparing for trial, and it is often a last chance effort to avoid trial. We will conduct significant research, talk to expert witnesses, and present a full case at the mediation to get you compensation.

The Texas Law Giant Is an Aggressive Negotiator

We will aggressively negotiate with powerful insurance companies on your behalf. You don’t have to worry about the intimidation strategies of the large organizations. We will handle the entire legal process for you to get you the best outcome possible.
