Although most personal injury claims end in settlement, you need a lawyer with trial experience because the insurance company must often be pressured with a lawsuit. Begum Law Group has a team of attorneys who are all experienced in the courtroom. We will negotiate a claim as much as possible; however, we are not afraid to file a lawsuit and take a case to trial.
You Will Likely Need to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 95% of personal injury cases in the United States are settled before going to trial. However, most of those cases require that a lawsuit be filed before the insurance company will offer an acceptable settlement amount.
It’s common for an insurance company to make a low-ball settlement offer before you file a lawsuit; however, they wait for you to show that you are serious before making a valid offer that will cover all of your losses. You can show that you are serious by filing a lawsuit. Thus, you need an attorney who knows how to file a complaint.
You Will Need to Use the Discovery Process
The discovery process is part of a personal injury lawsuit where both parties ask questions and request documentation of evidence for negligence and damages. The insurance company may request information about your medical treatment, medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and more that need to be carefully answered. You should work with an attorney who has experience responding to insurance companies who can easily use your information against you if you tell them too much or the wrong information.
Your Attorney Will Need to Know How to Talk to the Judge
Only an attorney with experience in the courtroom knows how to properly communicate with court personnel and the judge. Your attorney may need to ask for an extension on deadline or they may submit a Motion to Limit Evidence. In any event, you need an attorney who is comfortable in the courtroom at hearings and with calling the courthouse.
Your Case Could Go to Trial
If the insurance company refuses to make an acceptable settlement offer, your case may go to trial. You wouldn’t want to have to begin working with a new attorney who can take your case to trial. You need a lawyer with the experience and resources necessary to see your case through trial.
