Why File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Most people know that the first step to recovering compensation for the losses incurred from an accident is to file a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company. While our attorney can often help clients negotiate for a fair settlement, some cases require taking the matter to court. If the insurer refuses to agree to settle for the amount you are owed, you have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against them.

Filing a lawsuit might be the last thing you want to think about at a time like this, but with a law firm like Texas Abogada Leah Wise on your side, it could be your best option for recovering the compensation you deserve. Don’t get stuck with unpaid medical bills and depleted savings. Instead, let our experienced legal team help you get the money you need to cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and more.

Steps to Recover Compensation for Your Losses

The road to collecting compensation for the damages you have suffered as a result of your accident injuries begins with calling an experienced personal injury lawyer. Your attorney can strategically assess your case to determine whether you have grounds to file a personal injury claim, and how much you could be entitled to.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, the process of filing a personal injury claim can involve several steps, including:

  • Formulating your case – Your attorney carefully reviews every aspect of your case, considering several factors, including your injuries, the circumstances of your accident, the available evidence, your income and employment history, and your family’s current financial situation.
  • Negotiating for a settlement – Your legal representative works directly with the at-fault party’s insurance company, negotiating for the amount you need to cover your losses.
  • Filing a lawsuit – If the insurance company rejects a reasonable settlement offer, your attorney can initiate a lawsuit against them to pursue maximum compensation in court.
  • Going to trial – Your lawyer presents a compelling case on your behalf before a judge to prove the value of your claim. The court will determine the appropriate amount to be paid to the victim and place a legal requirement on the insurance company to comply.
