The time when you are dealing with recovery from an accidental injury is not the ideal time to deal with the legal aspects of that injury. Yet, this is the time you most need to pursue compensation from the individuals who caused your injury. This is why it is so important to contact the law firm of Auger & Auger. We can help you understand your available options and walk you through every step of the process to protect your rights and ensure you have the best chance of receiving fair compensation for your claim.
The first step of every litigation process is to decide how you plan to pursue your claim. You have three basic options:
The circumstances behind your injury and the degree of injury you sustained play a large role in which option you choose. And, the processes behind each option vary widely.
Filing an insurance claim seems like a simple process—you file a claim, and the insurance company issues payment. For very minor injuries, this process can be effective. But, when you retain an attorney from Auger & Auger, you gain substantial insurance company negotiation skills. Our attorneys understand that insurance claims adjustors are interested in settling your claim as quickly and inexpensively as possible. When our attorneys handle your claim, you are more likely to receive full and fair compensation for all the expenses associated with your injury.
An out-of-court settlement can be negotiated before an has been filed. But settlement can also be negotiated any time during the trial. This process involves discussions between the attorneys representing the injury victim and the individual responsible for the injury. Either attorney can make a settlement offer, but all parties they represent must agree to the offer. In most cases, failure to reach a settlement agreement sends the issue to court.
In-court injury litigation is a complex process, similar in many ways to criminal trials.
