How Your East Meadow Brain Injury Lawyer Will Serve You
Your lawyer will take on every detail related to your case. Your lawyer will even identify all of your damages and the party or multiple parties liable for those damages. Additionally, your lawyer will take care of all communications with other parties.
Some of the major tasks involved in resolving your case will be:
Presenting Evidence of Liability
Your case against the other party requires evidence of their liability. Your lawyer will seek out and collect this evidence for you. It could be a police report, surveillance and/or dashcam camera’s footage, an employee report, or other evidence.
On top of that, your case might also need evidence in the form of testimony from an expert, like a medical expert. Your lawyer will also get this for you.
Evidence will be invaluable for your case. However, it won’t be enough to prove liability completely. To do this, your lawyer will need to precisely establish the other party’s negligence. Your lawyer will show how:
- The other party owed you the responsibility to act carefully.
- The other party violated that responsibility.
- The violation of responsibility led to the incident.
- The incident led to your damages.
Negotiating With the Insurer
Next, your lawyer will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the other party’s insurance company. Negotiating can be even more complicated than proving liability, especially when an insurer refuses to cooperate. However, your lawyer will be prepared to deal with the insurer in your case.
Prior to negotiations, your lawyer will have determined an appropriate value for your case. This value will reflect all of your damages, including your intangible damages, like your pain and suffering. If the insurer argues against your lawyer’s valuation, your lawyer will present them with compelling arguments as to why the settlement demand is appropriate.
If necessary, your lawyer is able to commence a lawsuit. Knowing this, and knowing the reputation our firm has built over the past 30 years, this could convince the insurer to settle your case.
Resolving Your Case With a Judge
If the insurer doesn’t cooperate with your lawyer and offer an appropriate settlement, your lawyer is ready, willing and able to sue. A lawsuit will pressure the at-fault party’s insurance carrier to offer a settlement or to defend their position before a judge and jury in the courthouse. Your lawyer will be ready to bring experts to reinforce your case with the judge and jury.
