Your Settlement Negotiations


After you have reached maximum medical improvement and your doctor(s) has released you, we will ordinarily engage in settlement negotiations with the insurance carrier(s) before we file suit.


We provide the following information and documents for inclusion in the submittal package we send the insurance company: all your medical records, bills, and wage loss information. In addition, we may include photographs of your injuries and the accident scene along with medical reports from your physicians outlining your future medical needs and permanent disabilities. If we have retained special experts in your case like economists, life care planners, accident reconstructionists, and engineers, for example, we may also enclose their reports.


Once representatives of the insurance company have reviewed the submittal package, they will generally enter into settlement negotiations with our truck accident attorneys. We will keep you informed as this process proceeds, and we will keep you apprised of insurance company settlement offers. If settlement negotiations break down, we move to the next step, filing a lawsuit.
