When someone is injured because of someone else’s negligence, the injured person may be entitled to compensation on behalf of the perpetrator. This compensation often comes from the party that is guilty of causing a person to be injured or unwell, or from their insurance company. Very often, people need to go to court to settle a lawsuit but in some situations, usually with the help of a skilled personal injury attorney, a personal injury victim can get the person who harmed them or their insurance company, to come to an agreeable settlement before getting to a costly and time consuming civil court case.
A good reason to enlist the help of a law firm that is experienced in successfully defending the rights of personal injury victims is because insurance companies can be very difficult to negotiate with. Even when an injury is clearly an insurance company’s policy holder’s fault, insurance companies spend a lot of money and time trying to ensure that they can pay an injured person as little as they possibly can even though they could and are supposed to pay more. Insurance companies rarely make a settlement offer unless it is demanded and when they do make a settlement offer, it is commonly for much less than the injured person and/or their family needs to pay for all of the expenses that they have incurred because of the injury.
