UNDERSTANDING The RED-TAPE: Steps We Take: 

Safeguard The Legal Process One Step At A Time       

1. Hiring The Right Injury Law Firm

Insurers often hoodwink accident victims during the vulnerable time period following a catastrophe. Our partners keep insurance negotiations relatively civil and stable while injured victims heal. All crucial adjuster communications will use studied periods of time with descriptive and convenient terms from gathering common types of evidence related to past events.

The police or incident report history is immediately requested and analyzed by our legal analysts. Everything is placed into logical, discrete blocks of time and quantified as a "settlement demand" abstraction to favorably reveal your remembered history and expenses. Our leading team will confidently educate the insurance agent and explain the favorable factors, making things less arbitrary.

2. Getting The Right Medical Care 

We will couple the injured person with leading medical professionals in their area to help with treatment and injury diagnosis. If you remain without the means to pay for your medical treatment we can help simplify treatment. We can do so on a medical lien basis, which means you pay nothing initially. Moreover, your medical bills are paid from the settlement proceeds at the end of your case.

3. Insurance Company Settlement Negotiations

Supporting documentary evidence gets organized into a “settlement demand package.” Our team creates an orderly, honest evidentiary framework for insurance risk assessment. When we organize the scattered events of your case into a proper perspective, we can tell your story to the at-fault-insurer. Next, the bodily injury adjuster scrutinizes the risk. Typically, the insurance agent presents a low-ball counter-offer to your injury attorney. We relay the offer, to you and you must respond with an "acceptance," "rejection," or counteroffer.

4. Pre-Litigation Settlement

We settle the bulk of injury claims. If you think more negotiations are futile, we file a civil lawsuit. After the case settles, the victim signs a settlement release which officially dismisses the injury case. But we take more steps after the agreed payment of financial compensation is disbursed. Our valiant firm will also negotiate with your medical providers to lower your bills. Our goal is to increase your pocket money! 

5. Filing My Personal Injury Lawsuit

 If the homeowner's or liability insurance company's compensation offer is unfair, we timely file the plaintiff's civil negligence lawsuit. This valuable litigation procedure boosts the adjuster's attention to the risks of potential loss versus coverages. We can expect them to give us a higher settlement offer at this point. Our friendly law firm happily advances the pleading costs of your case. We appreciate that you don't want out of pocket expenses. Your advanced costs will be reimbursed by your accident attorneys from the abundant proceeds of your outstanding settlement victory.     

6. Written Discovery and Oral Depositions

There are two types of civil discovery, written affidavit, and oral depositions. Written discovery is typically subpoenaed by your lawyer. Litigants use this process to properly examine witnesses before their oral deposition to gather their paper statements and documentary evidence. An oral deposition is taken out of court, unsupervised by a judge, in front of a public notary, or certified court reporter and stenographer. Unless the examination of a witness by your personal injury lawyer is legally verified under oath, they are no response at all. But you can use the discovered statements to dispute credibility. (See Appleton v. Superior Court). 

The discovery process can be sped up if a chance exists the testifying witness will die beforehand. Experts and parties who will testify are deposed to test their credibility and qualifications. The discovery process allows the parties and witnesses to preserve objections to tell their story for later use. Many at-fault-defendants crack under the pressure of these "fishing expeditions." If not, the crucial information we gather is produced at binding arbitration, mediation, and even to seek monetary sanctions. After this, the insurer knows you are ready to return a verdict, which elevates the case in the eyes of the adjuster, priming it to settle. 

7. Mediation and Arbitration

Before litigating further, the court will order a mandatory settlement conference (MSC). Judicial economy militates in favor of settling at this stage. Sometimes your dispute will go before an evaluative, neutral mediator or "arbitrator." Both are professionals who listen to each side with consistency. 

  • A mediator is neutral 

They referee an objectively fair settlement. Conversely, the arbitrator adjudicates, sitting as judge and jury. A mediator uses specialized communication management techniques and negotiation methods. But the mediator must sway the parties. This "reality test" can guide the discussion towards a constructive direction and optimal solution. Sometimes arbitration is required by an insurance policy or other stipulation. This is why binding or non-binding arbitration techniques may be required first. Sometimes a jury can never decide on the matter. Assuming the form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) used is binding, it closes the personal injury case.      

8. Winning My Trial By Jury 

The final step in the personal injury law process is a full-blown trial. The purview of jurors to decide distributive and reparative justice. Successful dispute resolution requires a positive relationship building with the court's jury panel. Our lawyers use a cutting edge legal and philosophical justice model. 

Our astonishing trial attorneys will present your case to an unbiased jury of your peers. Jurors will ultimately deliver a square deal to litigants. This is why a jury must hear all the facts and deliberate evidence neutrally. But many leading egalitarians say righteous revenge is all a jury award conveys. However, the jury returning decides the accident's verdict.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Our no win no fee contingency fee agreement means we charge you no hourly fee, or fees upfront. Instead, we receive our attorney's fee after winning your meritorious case, meaning victims unable to afford an attorney pay us our fee split later. Our contingent fee contract remains the gold standard and includes handling up-front costs until the jury returns.

Is A Personal Injury Attorney Worth It?

Not every personal injury claim requires help from a serious injury attorney. Trying to resolve a severe injury case alone before seeking legal help can taint your chances of hiring a future firm. Less serious injury cases may be handled as small claims actions. Ehline Law Firm furnishes risk-free consultations to suffering injured victims.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Worth?

Your claims for damages come with no set price because everyone suffers uniquely. Many calculations go into evaluating and estimating your case's monetary value, including available insurance coverage amounts, financial losses from medical expenses, lost work, and your percentage of fault. You won't know these dollar figures immediately, because your claim must be strengthened through evidence gathering while investigating your general and economic value damages. Shady insurance adjusters prefer low hanging fruit, opting to pay a represented party more while underpaying the next.

Will My Personal Injury Claims Go To Court?

Only around 5% of personal injury claims will be filed in court, heard by a judge, jury, or witnesses, as most parties resolve court disputes by using alternative methods.

What Should I Expect After An Accident?

You must mitigate health concerns by seeking immediate medical treatment for your injuries by riding to an Emergency Room or Urgent care center by ambulance. You must present evidence of these medical documents to the insurance company come time to negotiate, or you'll face a devalued or denied claim. After a hospital treats your wounds, you must contact the Ehline Law Firm. You must avoid discussing your matter with insurance adjusters or agents. If you do mistakenly speak to an insurer, never provide a telephonically recorded statement. You must safeguard helpful evidence including crash site images. Our partners and staff will deal with further insurance company communications, as well as arranging your medical treatments, letting you rest, heal your pain and suffering. reflecting on your next steps for your type of injury.
