Knowing When to Litigate a Personal Injury Claim
In certain circumstances, when dealing with certain insurance companies, it will simply be impossible to negotiate a reasonable settlement with them for your personal injury claim. In such a case, the only recourse left is litigation.
There are several key factors that can indicate that you are in such a situation. These insurance companies are usually resistant to paying for treatment for your soft-tissue injuries. Adjusters from this sort of insurance company are extremely wary of making payment for things like chiropractic treatment. They might try to avoid paying for damages that are harder to quantify, such as for pain and suffering. Your file will be combed for anything that could be construed as evidence that the insured is not completely liable for your injuries; this is a means by which insurance companies try to avoid payment.
This is why you need an Orange County personal injury attorney who is familiar with which insurance companies have a reputation for being difficult like this, who knows when further letters and phone calls will be ineffective, when further negotiation will be a waste of your time.
