When you have been in a car accident and suffered injuries and damages to your vehicle you
should rightly get compensated for the losses that you have suffered. Your injuries may be
minor, or they may be severe enough to need treatment for a long period. This may also
prevent you from earning your wages during the period of your treatment. You may know
that there is a certain amount that you will require to tide over all these.
But most of the times the insurance companies don’t pay the amount that you deserve. They
will try to reduce as much as possible. Knowing about your injuries and mental status they
will decide to put pressure on you to agree for what they offer. You may decide that this is
the time to go for a personal injury lawsuit. But before you go for one, you need to
understand a few things.
Go For Settlement
You must understand that the result of a trial can go either way. You may be on the right side,
but the jury could decide otherwise. You cannot predict the way jury will think. They can
decide against you. You never know.
When you go for a settlement with the help of an accident attorney, it is a final decision. The
lawyer will help you with the negotiation and get you what you deserve. As they are
experienced in dealing with the insurance companies, lawyers know how to handle them and
get the best compensation for you. A settlement is final without any scope for change.
Demand letters are great tools to seek compensation. You can get your accident attorney to
draft a demand letter. A demand letter will clearly mention all details about your accident, the
cause of the accident and the injuries you have suffered. It will give evidence of medical
treatment and explain the amount needed for future medical treatment. With all these, there
will be a demand for an amount that will take care of all your needs. This letter will also
explain very clearly why the insurance company will benefit from the settlement rather than
going to court.

Insurance companies don’t settle immediately as soon as they receive the demand letter.
There will be negotiations between them and your accident attorney. An attorney has the
necessary skills to put pressure on the insurance companies and get you the settlement that
