What is the Personal Injury Claim Process?
The personal injury claim process will generally vary from case to case. Some cases can be settled outside of court, without the need for litigation. The Boise Idaho personal injury lawyers at Johnson & Lundgreen, P.C. will first determine the value of your case by reviewing documents, medical bills, and if needed, speaking to experts about the prognosis and costs of your injuries. Once our personal injury attorneys have arrived at an estimated value of your case, we will generally begin by writing a demand letter to negligent parties and by beginning the negotiation process with insurance companies. Often, cases can be settled satisfactorily outside of court.
However, when a satisfactory settlement cannot be reached using demand letters and other negotiation methods, our personal injury lawyers are not afraid to take your case to court. In many cases, insurance companies know when a client has a lawyer who is serious about taking a case to court. Court expenses can be costly if insurance companies lose, so they might be more willing to settle your case outside of court. But if a settlement cannot be reached outside of court, you may need to file a lawsuit. The process of filing a lawsuit involves filing paperwork with the court, the discovery process (where you may be asked to undergo an independent medical examination), the negotiation process, and possibly, trial.
Regardless of how your case unfolds, you can rest assured that Johnson & Lundgreen, P.C. will work hard to find the best possible resolution for your case. We will work to keep you informed every step of the way. Contact our personal injury attorneys in Boise, Idaho today to learn more.
