Fighting an Insurance Company
The insurance company has attorneys who are working hard against you. That’s why you need a proven law firm on your side to make it a fair fight. Our lawyers used to work for the big insurance companies, so we know the inside secrets to getting you the largest cash settlement possible.
Personal Injury cases are serious business, and winning them requires teamwork. When you hire Doan Law Firm., you get access to our entire network of experts, including private investigators, doctors to treat your injuries, economists to document your lost wages, engineers to re-construct your incident for the jury, and investment counselors to advise you how to maximize the returns on your cash award. It takes a team to win, and our firm has the network to get it done.
Your satisfaction is our priority. We want you to always feel comfortable about what is happening, and we want you to know exactly where your case is going. Here is some general information about our process, and what you can expect to happen in your case.
There are four phases to a bodily-injury claim: commencement, treatment, settlement and litigation. Around ninety-five percent of all cases in the nation settle out of court. Only those cases that do not settle will go to trial.
In the beginning of your case, we will enter into an attorney-client relationship. Everything you discuss with us is confidential and protected by the attorney-client privilege. Our first mission is to gather all critical information we need to build your case into a winner, such as the identities of all the players, the nature of your injuries, and all insurance companies that could possibly owe you money.
Any delay in getting to the doctor could hurt your case, and could also be dangerous. Therefore, a key component of the commencement phase is to identify all of your injuries, and to get you to all necessary doctors in our network as quickly as possible.
Also, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost earning capacity, loss of the use of a vehicle, pain and suffering, emotional distress and other categories of damages. All of these topics are explored upon commencement, and are critical to help maximize your claim for money damages.
After the commencement phase is complete, your case moves into the treatment phase. Here, you are treating with doctors for your injuries. In some cases, you may have been transported by ambulance, or been to the emergency room, before you retained us. Now, it is vital that you continue with all follow-up medical treatment. Consistent medical treatment is how you will heal, and it is also how to build a winning case.
If you need a chiropractor, an orthopedist, a pain-management specialist or any other type of doctor, tell us. We can refer you to any specialist in our network, and no medical insurance will be required. In fact, all of the doctors in our network will accept payment from your bodily-injury settlement at the end of your case, so no money will be paid up front out of your pocket.
But the most important thing to understand about the treatment phase is that your claim cannot be settled until you are done with treatment. This is so important that we will say it again. Your claim cannot be settled until you are done treating for your injuries.
The reason is simple. The value of your claim is based on your medical bills. Therefore, until you are done with treatment, it is impossible to calculate the full value of your claim. It would be a mistake to prematurely settle your claim quickly and cheaply. So to recover the highest possible settlement, make sure that you are done treating with doctors before we make our settlement demand.
As you can imagine, it takes time to heal. So during the treatment phase, it may seem like not much is happening in your case. But really, by consistently going to the doctor, you are helping us to prepare your settlement demand. In the end, it will be worth the wait, because we will be ready to net you the largest cash settlement possible.
After the treatment phase is over, we will make a settlement demand to the insurance company for you. As your medical treatment draws to a close, we gather the medical records, reports and bills. These are the evidence of your damage claim and will be used to negotiate your cash settlement. This is also the phase where we make sure that your lost wages claim has been fully documented, and all other money damage items have been included in your settlement demand.
Once we have a cash settlement offer from the insurance company, we will immediately call to discuss it with you. We will advise you during this phase, share our knowledge of the bodily-injury market, and use all of our insider knowledge to negotiate the best cash settlement possible.
Today, over ninety-five percent of cases settle out of court. The justice system is over-burdened with criminal cases, and trials are unpredictable, expensive and time-consuming. Some cases take over $50,000 in costs and two years or more to bring to trial. All of those expenses come right off the top of your judgment, so if you don’t have a big case, it will not be worth the expense of taking it to trial.
