It's no fun to be embroiled in a lawsuit over an unsettled claim. The vast majority of claims are resolved in negotiated settlements between the parties. That is a best-case scenario because it saves both time and money for the involved parties.
But, unfortunately, not all claims get resolved in this manner. You can start out in good faith negotiating with the adversarial party and suddenly see things go south in a hurry. You realize that you must do something differently if you are to prevail in your case.
That's typically the point at which litigants reach out to attorneys for assistance in moving their claims forward. It's especially helpful to seek the services of an experienced litigator when it appears that a claim will not resolve and is headed to court.
We help clients every day prevail in their efforts to hold insurance companies liable for the injuries their insured inflict on our clients. It's important to understand that the goal of these insurance companies is to settle claims for the least amount of money possible.
Most people have no clue as to what their claims are truly worth. Many think they have million-dollar claims when their claims are actually worth only a fraction of that. Alternatively, claimants often accept far less than their claims are really worth because they fail to factor in future medical care and other expenses that can swell a claim's value considerably.
Some simple claims can be handled between the consumer and the insurance company with few problems. But bigger claims involving much more complex issues should generally be negotiated by professionals who can get claimants the most money possible.
