Car accident settlement
The number one question I get almost every time I first initially meet with a client is, “Is it worth even pursuing this process? What kind of a settlement will I even get? Is it worth balancing out the time and the cost to go through this whole process?” They ask me, “Well, what kind of a settlement can I expect?” Any ethical attorney will explain to you that, that is an impossible question to answer early on in the case.
There is no way that we can tell what kind of an outcome would happen. There are too many variables. Number one, who are the insurance companies involved? Number two, what types of injuries do you have? Number three, what kind of treatment did you sustain? What kind of income did you lose? These are all things that oftentimes develop throughout the time of the case. So, in the beginning, we don’t know and the reality is that a settlement takes quite some time.
We never want to sacrifice your rights for a release of all claims against the other driver and their insurance company. What we are going to do is, we are going to take our time with you, monitor you, help guide you through this process and then once we really understand the true nature of what you’ve been through or what you may endure the rest of your life, only then can we assess the value of your claim.
