What To Expect After Hiring Us?/ What To Expect After Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Peace of Mind.
The primary reason why you should hire an attorney to assist you in your personal injury case is so that you can focus entirely on your recovery without having to stress about the legal aspect of the situation. Once you hire a law firm, they will take charge of everything involving your accident so that you can attempt to resume your daily routine.
Often, insurance companies attempt to minimize your damages in order to limit the financial compensation that you are owed. Every conversation with the insurance companies is recorded and every question asked has a purpose. Law firms have experience communicating with these companies so that nothing is ever compromised.
We Take Care of the Paperwork.
One of the first things that the attorney will do is send letters of representation to every insurance company involved in the case. This is so that they are aware that all communication must be done through the attorney. Once they receive the letter, they can no longer contact you. If your accident has not been reported to the insurance companies, then the attorney will open a claim on your behalf. You will not have to deal with the insurance companies directly once you have hired a lawyer.
We Set Up Your Medical Appointments and Will Provide Transportation if Needed.
Next, they will schedule the adequate medical appointments for your type of injuries. These appointments will be done on a lien basis meaning that there will be no upfront costs for you. The medical providers get paid once your case is settled, and the money is taken from the insurance company of the person at fault.
Medical care on a lien basis is a big advantage especially for injured victims who do not have access to medical insurance. Our great record of success allows us access to all the best medical providers throughout California. Another advantage of hiring our firm is that we have a dedicated department tasked with negotiating your medical bills in order to guarantee that you receive the maximum compensation for your pain and suffering.
We Gather All the Facts
After ensuring that you are receiving the proper medical care, the law firm will begin to investigate the accident so that all the facts can be collected. If there are any witnesses, they will be contacted by the firm. This is to paint a clear picture of what occurred at the time of the accident. At this point, the attorney will begin to assess the damages to your vehicle or property so that it can be repaired or so that you can be paid the price value in a timely manner.
How Long Does The Process Take?
Sometimes a case may not be resolved quickly and this is because the lawyer cannot proceed forward until your doctor has released you and until you have recovered from all of your injuries. The time frame for a case is directly related to the severity of the injuries sustained and the length of the recovery. After you are released by your doctor, the medical providers will need to gather their reports and bills. Some hospitals and offices may take weeks or even months to do so.
Our firm will constantly follow up with them so that we can receive all the paperwork as soon as possible. After all the reports are collected, the lawyer will solicit an offer from the insurance companies involved in the case. Once an offer is received, the lawyer will contact you so that a decision can be reached. Usually the first offer is not accepted and a negotiation begins. The negotiation process can also take several weeks, usually longer if any of the insurance companies fail to agree to the costs presented.
