Clients often worry that hiring a lawyer to represent them in their South Carolina car accident case will mean they have to testify on the stand in front of a jury. After seeing ruthless attorneys batter personal injury victims on TV, you might understandably be reluctant to hire a lawyer.
Fortunately, many cases are reasonably negotiated before they ever make it to a courtroom.
Settling out of court…
One of the biggest aspects of our jobs as auto accident lawyers is to negotiate with the responsible party’s insurance company. We build the strongest case possible for you and then present it. Here’s how that works:
- Your injuries are evaluated.
We work with you to get a comprehensive understanding of your injuries, how much your medical care will cost, and how those things will impact the rest of your life.
- We identify the value of your case.
Once we have a comprehensive understanding of your injuries and how they will impact you long term, we can determine a figure that will help make you financially whole.
- We build your case.
Then we research and investigate your case, collecting witness, medical records, and work information.
- We negotiate the insurance company.
From there, we approach the responsible driver’s insurance company with a settlement amount that will help cover your damages, and present our argument for why you deserve that amount and no less.
If the insurance company can come to a reasonable conclusion and offer a fair settlement, you may not have to go to court. The key to winning a fair settlement begins with an accurate evaluation of your injuries, and a strong case with solid evidence.
