How Do You Proceed With My Case?
While you are treating, we consult with your doctors and other medical providers, and get periodic reports and bills from them. We also check with your employer, and find out information about your lost wages. We research all legal questions, and compare your case with similar cases. We then compile a settlement brochure, which we send to the insurance company. We always ask for more than we expect to get, and within a week or 10 days, we normally hear from the insurance company, offering us less than we are willing to take. The procedure at that point is that we come down a little bit at a time, and get the insurance company to go up, until we get what we consider to be their best offer. If we can agree that this is an adequate offer, we settle the case right then. If the case cannot be settled, we file suit.
