Have you suffered an injury and are filing a claim? Check out these 4 commonly asked personal injury questions, then call our office today.
1) Should I Accept the First Settlement Offer?
Clients often ask if they should accept an initial offer from an insurance company. It’s important for clients to consult with a lawyer before accepting an offer. Chances are the insurance company has lowballed the client, and lowball offers tend to remain such until you get a trial lawyer or a lawyer with a lot of trial experience on the case. Insurance companies and big corporations know that a person without a lawyer in our legal system is at a tremendous disadvantage, and that’s why they give them lowball offers. They’re taking advantage of employees or people under those circumstances, so it’s never a good idea to take the initial offer from an insurance company. It’s never a good idea to go up against an insurance company or a big corporation without the services of an experienced trial lawyer.
2) What are the Steps to File a Personal Injury Claim?
If you are seriously injured in El Paso, the steps for filing a lawsuit from the client’s perspective are very simple. First and foremost, find a lawyer with significant trial experience. That lawyer will know what to do and take you through the steps, which are, one, to file a lawsuit, serve the negligent party, and then you go through a process of paper discovery, deposition or testimony discovery of the bad guys or the black hats, and, at that point, you’re ready to go to trial. It’s a very simple process, in terms of the steps, and then we go to trial.
If you have any questions about what it takes to go to trial or what are the steps, please give us a call at the Chavez Law Firm. We are trial experienced attorneys with a lot of trial experience, and we’ll be able to answer all of your questions and help you in any way we can.
3) What is the Timeline for a Personal Injury Case?
Clients sometimes ask how long a case is going to take. The answer is it depends on where they are in terms of the treatment of their injuries. Some injuries take longer to treat, and some injuries take less. We need to wait until treatment is complete so that we have a complete picture of the injuries and their consequences. What we always do at the Chavez Law Firm is push our cases. We push our cases as aggressively as possible, always taking into consideration the needs of the client and what is best for the client so that we can maximize their compensation and their recovery from those who have harmed them.
4) Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?
It is not always clear early on if a case is going to trial. For one, we don’t know what the evidence is going to show or how medical treatment is going to go. What is certain is that the only time we go to trial is when the insurance company isn’t negotiating in good faith. When that happens, rest assured that we will fully prepare for trial. If you have any questions about your personal injury case or how long your case could potentially take to go to trial, give us a call. We’ll be happy to answer your questions.
