Insurance companies want to settle personal injury claims for as little compensation for the affected party as possible. They will consider it a victory when they can completely avoid paying a claim. The legal professionals at Heit Law will fight to ensure that this does not happen to you and you are given proper compensation following your injury.
These cases arise as a result of a party’s negligence that directly resulted in harm to another party. Typically, the disputes can be settled out of court; however, there are instances in which the injured party in the case is forced to pursue formal litigation. In these cases, the plaintiff’s legal representation must prove that the defendant acted with negligence and as a result of said negligence, the plaintiff suffered injury.
In between outside settlement and legal proceedings is what is known as mediation or arbitration. Both parties involved in the dispute will participate in proceedings that are similar to litigation, but it is done on a voluntary basis and is not court mandated. Arbitration or mediation are more formal than out of court settlements but not as formal as court proceedings.
There are variety of instances in which personal injury suits commonly arise. Here are just a few we at Heit Law typically deal with:
