First and foremost, we will review all medical reports, look at all bills, read police reports, witness statements – every single document that applies to your case. The more we know about your case, the better able we will be to represent you. This may seem obvious but note that some attorneys may assume that your case is similar to all the other accident cases they have handled. We will never do this.
In some cases, it is best to let the insurance company make the first offer. In others, we will request a settlement first. If we do, then we will demand an amount that is high but not too high. We will put you in a position in which we can negotiate to a level that the insurance company is likely to accept and that will still provide you with the compensation you deserve.
Some attorneys exaggerate their claims. They do this to try and maximize the settlement, but it can have the opposite effect. The truth is that the insurance adjuster we are going to be working with is going to be savvy. They know what the case is worth. If you work with an attorney who exaggerates the case at every turn, you will be losing credibility with the insurance adjuster.
At Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas we are not afraid to be aggressive and to negotiate aggressively. That said, we also know that the best solution is one in which you get the maximum settlement as quickly as possible. We will work directly with the insurance company with this goal in mind. In most cases, this involves beginning the process with respect and courtesy.
Taking your personal injury claim to court costs money – there is no way around that. The insurance company knows this and they know that many personal injury attorneys will do just about anything to avoid taking a case to court. This is not the case with Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas. It is true that we take cases on contingency, which means we only get paid if our clients do. As a result, taking a case to court puts all the risk on us.
We always weigh the pros and cons of litigation and in some cases you may get the best settlement if we settle versus taking it to court. However, make no mistake – if we need to take your case to court to get you a fair award then we will do that. Learn more about your options now by contact Law Offices of Fernando D.
