Your Demand Met with a Wall of Silence
After you have hired a personal injury lawyer, the lawyer will work on your case to establish liability and prove damages. In many instances, before a suit is commenced negotiations are started with the responsible parties or their insurance companies before a lawsuit is filed. This is often called pre-suit negotiations. Sometimes pre-suit negotiations are effective and bring your claim to a resolution. In other cases, pre-suit negotiations are started and in return the plaintiff only receives the silent treatment. This many times signals a flat out denial of your claim and unwillingness to even begin negotiating. In cases like this, an experienced personal injury attorney knows where to start working to obtain justice. If you do not have a lawyer on your side, the insurance company is at a great advantage. With an attorney on your side, you can level the playing field and even put the advantage on your side as you progress through the complicated litigation process.
