Understanding the Personal Injury Claim Process
After your Orange County personal injury attorney has completed all necessary investigations, negotiations begin with the insurance company for the party or parties whom we believe are responsible for your injuries. At this point, we will demand a settlement from the insurer, which will outline the facts of your case, explain why the other party is liable, and set forth any evidence in support of your claim. This settlement demand also will detail your medical expenses, lost income, and other losses in order to place a monetary value on your claim. Typically, these negotiations go back and forth for some time while the parties attempt to reach an acceptable settlement amount.
In some cases, when a settlement cannot be reached, your personal injury claim moves to the litigation stage. This means that a formal lawsuit is filed in court, and the other party has the opportunity to respond. The parties may file various motions and legal documents about the case. The judge may refer the case to mediation, which is a form of alternative dispute resolution, or the case may proceed to a jury trial for a more formal resolution. However your case proceeds, rest assured that your Orange County personal injury lawyer will be with you every step of the way in order to help bring your case to a successful resolution.
