We Go the Extra Mile When Preparing for Settlement Negotiations
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we understand the anger, confusion, and fear that you may be feeling after suffering a personal injury or wrongful death in the family. There's a lot of misinformation out there about the claims process, and you might not know who to trust or what steps to take to strengthen your case. The best way to get the answers you seek is to speak with an experienced attorney. The San Bruno personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are well-versed in the laws and procedures that govern a broad range of California tort claims. We will help you understand what to expect during the claims process, and we can take all the necessary steps to give your case the best possible chance of resulting in a fair settlement. Some attorneys only accept simple claims that will require minimal investigation. But at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we’re not afraid to take on complex cases against large insurance companies and corporations. Even if your case seems relatively straightforward, we will prepare as if we are going to trial. Depending on the facts surrounding your claim, our investigation may involve visiting the scene of the accident, interviewing witnesses, filing subpoenas for evidence, and consulting experts. This comprehensive approach will ensure your case is as strong as possible when settlement negotiations start.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
The answer to this question depends on many factors. In most cases, reaching an out-of-court settlement rather than going to trial is in the best interests of all parties involved. Settling your case could greatly shorten the duration of the proceedings and tends to be less stressful than litigation; however, in some circumstances, going to court is the best option. This may be true if the opposing party is unwilling to pay a fair settlement, tries to blame you for the accident, or if you intend to pursue punitive damages.
What Can I Do to Strengthen My Personal Injury Case?
If you decide to hire one of our attorneys, we will handle all the logistics of your case so you can focus on your health and your family. The best way for you to contribute to the strength of your claim is to avoid making mistakes that could lead to a liability or damages dispute. These mistakes include posting information about your case on social media, refusing to follow your doctor’s orders, returning to work too early, providing a statement to the claims adjuster, and signing documents from the insurance company without your attorney’s approval. You can also help your legal team get off to a strong start by preparing for the initial consultation. Be sure to bring any evidence you have compiled including medical documents and bills, paystubs and income tax returns, photos of injuries and the accident scene, the contact information of the other parties involved and eyewitnesses, the police report, and any relevant insurance policies. Even if you do not have all of this evidence available, you should still schedule your legal consultation as soon as possible. We can gather this evidence on your behalf, but much of it may be time-sensitive, so it is important that we are able to initiate the investigation right away.
