Many people who have been involved in a personal injury situation are reluctant to contact an attorney because they believe that this will necessarily put them into a situation where they will be participating in a lawsuit.
There is a large difference between making a legal claim and filing a lawsuit. For example, in almost all of our cases, we first put together a complete package that covers all aspects of why our client is entitled to compensation, including the medical records and bills, and any other relevant evidence and all legal arguments underlying our position. T The insurance company will typically then review this package, and, in most cases, begin negotiations to attempt to resolve the matter, and avoid both parties ending up in a court room.
At Wiener and Lambka we have been working in the Personal Injury field for more than 20 years as a law, firm and more than 75 years between the two name partners. Over this time we have found that we can typically reach a fair resolution, and avoid having to sue the other party, about 85% of the time without having the need to file a lawsuit.
In fact, because we do such a good job of presenting our case from the beginning, most of the cases where we do end up, filing a lawsuit or necessitated, because the insurance company was acting in an unreasonable manner. The good news is that when this occurs, we have the court system to take over the case and provide an end date, where a judge or jury will determine the outcome and demonstrate which side has been unreasonable. Well, we cannot force the other side to be reasonable in the short term, we have the tools and are ready and willing to use them in the event that it is necessary.
