Your Attorney Must Verify Your Medical Expenses Before Beginning Negotiations
In order to negotiate a settlement for your personal injury claim, your Orange County personal injury attorney will need you to keep an accurate and thorough record of all medical expenses.
It is imperative that your medical records are accurate and up-to-date before your attorney sends the letter of demand to initiate negotiations with the insurance carrier. He may ask you to compare his record of your expenses with your own and report any discrepancies. This is a chance to catch any bills that you might have forgotten to send to your attorney before they have a chance to damage your case.
In addition, your Orange County personal injury attorney will also takes steps to independently verify all of your expenses. Your attorney may begin by contacting all your healthcare providers, checking if there are any outstanding bills that are not in his records. If your attorney hears about an outstanding bill that have not been factored into your settlement demand, he will need details regarding the bill, including what it was for, its amount, and the date it was incurred.
With all of this information in place, your Orange County personal injury attorney will be able to settle your claim much faster than he would be otherwise, as incomplete medical records would raise insurance company suspicion and result in unnecessary interruption.
You can be sure that an experienced Orange County personal injury attorney will enter negotiations fully prepared. Call Samer Habbas at 888-848-5084 today for a free initial consultation.
