Personal Injury: The Painful Truth

If you are trying to recover damages from the insurance company of the person who has caused your injuries or even from your own insurance company, it’s time to learn more about filing a personal injury lawsuit on an insurance claim.

Make no mistake, you want an experienced lawyer by your side as early as possible in this process. A personal injury lawyer who has successfully handled insurance claims may give you an advantage in getting the best possible settlement or court decision possible.

If you have been injured by someone, the first thing you should do is gather evidence regarding who is at fault and how much your damages are worth. An experienced personal injury attorney at The Law Office of James Schull can help you greatly in this process as he knows exactly what to look for and present.

And speaking of presenting, the next step will be creating a demand letter to notify the party or parties from which you will seek payment that you are pursuing a claim against them. Included in the demand letter will be your suggested settlement offer. If the insurance company accepts it, your legal dealings are just about over with them, except for the actual payment for your injuries.

If your offer is not accepted and no further agreement can be reached, you may end up in court battling it out against the insurance company. Again, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help greatly, preparing the appropriate evidence such as police reports, medical billing and reports, accident scene photos, and expert witnesses.

Showing that an insurance company of another person is responsible for your damages in a personal injury claim will require proving that the person had a duty to you, that he or she breached or violated that duty, and that you suffered damages because of that violation.

If you think you will need a personal injury lawyer to help you with your insurance claim, contact The Law Office of James D. Schull at 817-249-5300 now before losing any more time and potential evidence.
