Insurance companies know which attorneys are prepared to litigate a case and those who are just looking for a quick settlement. It is important to consult with an attorney if you’ve been injured by the negligence or intention of another person. There are certain requirements relating to insurance coverage that need to be addressed immediately, to ensure that your medical bills are paid for.
It is also important that prospective clients understand the Statute of Limitations that applies to their case. In general, there is a three-year deadline for filing a lawsuit relating to negligence. If this is not accomplished, your case may not be able to proceed. While this may seem like a long time, a case must be investigated immediately to ensure the preservation of evidence and the securing of the cooperation of witnesses.
The insurance carriers know what attorneys will file actions and who will not. Our reputation dictates that we are ready to bring an action into court and have it tried before a jury. This aides us in settling our client’s cases in an expeditious manner, and if that is not possible, successfully presenting the case to a jury.
