Your primary goal is to get healthy and recover from your accident. We will collect information about your case; we collect documents to include the full police report, insurance information, medical records, and bills. When possible, we collect photographic evidence of the scene of the injury, the property damage, and bodily injuries. If necessary, we may interview witnesses and hire expert witnesses. Then, we submit a demand for settlement to the insurance company and negotiate with them. If we don’t reach a settlement at that point, we discuss filing a lawsuit. While in a lawsuit, we engage in discovery, which is the exchange of paperwork and information with the insurance company’s attorneys. Next come depositions, where they question our client and we question theirs. Other witnesses may also be deposed. Then the insurance company might have our client examined by their doctor. Last is trial. A lawsuit can settle at any point along the way if the parties can come to an agreement or if the discovery process reveals information that causes one party to change its position.
