When will I receive my personal injury settlement? Our personal injury attorneys hear that question more than any other. Since no two automobile accident injuries are the same, each insurance claim is similarly unique. In fact, the time frame for your settlement all depends on your health.
We’ve always believed that a good personal injury lawyer usually waits until you have reached the maximum medical improvement, meaning your doctor clears your release from medical treatment, before presenting a settlement demand. Until that time, our attorneys investigate all the necessary facts and documents to properly present your personal injury settlement demand.
Our Personal Injury Attorneys Produce a Settlement Demand
A settlement demand is a complicated legal document that our personal injury attorneys present to insurance companies. In calculating your personal injury settlement demand, both you and your attorney must consider many things, which include:
- Past, present and future medical bill expenses
- Lost earnings from time missed from work as well as the time you’re expected to miss in the future
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Any other expenses that may be required to treat long-term injuries or ailments associated with the accident.
We Seek Compensation for All Damage Claims
Pain and suffering claims focus on human factors, and it’s something that your insurance company will not calculate in their small personal injury settlement offer.
- Time you lost with your spouse or significant other
- Time you lost with your children
- Missed birthday parties
- Vacations cut short
Since your insurance company might not tell you about these damages, not to mention the difficulty involved in calculated pain and suffering, wouldn’t it be easier to have an experienced personal injury lawyer — who can include all these human factors into your personal injury settlement demand — deal with the insurance companies?
