1) Insurance Investigation
The one thing that we can tell you is that, based on our years of experience here, we recommend that you do not accept the first offer in almost all situations. Insurance companies do everything that they possibly can to make sure that they pay you as little as possible. When dealing with insurance companies and negotiating a premises liability claim, you can think of it as building a house. The insurance company is building the floor and your attorney is building the ceiling. The insurance company is trying to get you an offer as close to the floor as possible, whereas your attorney is trying to get you an offer as close to the ceiling as possible. You want someone who’s going to get you the compensation that you deserve.
2) Choosing the Best Attorney For You
One of the first factors that you want to consider and probably the most important is you want to pick the person you feel most comfortable with. You are injured and you want someone who can help you navigate through this difficult time. In addition to finding someone who you feel comfortable with, you will also want to pick somebody who has experience handling cases just like yours. Our office would love to see what we could do to help you with your premises liability matter.
3) Case Timeline
How long it can take for you to resolve your premises liability claim is determined by a number of different factors. The most important factor, though, is how long it takes for you to complete your medical treatment. You never want to submit a claim to an insurance company unless you’ve completed all of your treatment because they’re only going to pay you once. You want to make sure that you put your best foot forward.
4) Case Value
There are many factors that go into this answer. The thing that you need to consider is that when an insurance company is looking to try to resolve a claim, there’s a number of things that go into their initial offer. They’re going to be considering not only your medical expenses, but they’re also going to be looking at your lost wages, your out-of-pocket expenses and, most importantly, your pain and suffering. It’s tough to put a dollar value on what you’re going through right now, but our office does everything that we possibly can to maximize your recovery.
