This is a brief overview of how the process works when you retain Attorney Bruce A. Blaylock to assist you with your case.
- While you are recovering from your injury, our legal team will handle all paperwork and correspondence with insurance companies, interface on any issues relating to your claim, supervise the path your case is on, and handle the headaches and hassles associated with the legal aspects of your injury.
- At some point, you will either be discharged by your doctor, or will reach “maximum medical improvement” (which is when the doctors say that you have recovered as fully as you are going to.)
- At that point, our team assembles a unique package detailing and outlining all aspects of how the injury occurred, the extent of the injuries, and summarizing both the economic AND non-economic consequences you have suffered as a result of the injury, as well as the impact it has had on your life.
- This is assembled in a way that personal injury attorney Bruce A. Blaylock has specifically designed from his experience in handling injury claims for many decades. It is carefully calibrated to maximize its effectiveness with the insurance company, both in terms of its initial impact, as well as during the negotiations themselves. Once finalized, the package is sent to the insurance company for their review.
- After the insurance company reviews the material, negotiations to try to settle the claim usually occur. If and when the insurance company makes an offer to settle your claim, you will be given a detailed summary and explanation of what has been offered.
- At that point, our firm will advise you of whether we think that the amount of money you are being offered is fair and reasonable, or unfair and should be rejected.
- We will advise and council you. But you make the decision. You are in control. You are the one who decides whether to settle out of court or to go to trial. In fact, Attorney Bruce A. Blaylock believes so strongly in your right to make the ultimate decision in your case that he has included it as item #9 in his Client Bill of Rights.
- Based on all the information that is provided to you, you will then be in a position to make an informed decision as to whether or not you want to accept an offer to settle the matter out of court.
- If you do not want to settle the matter out of court, then you will instruct us to go ahead and file a lawsuit against the defendant, and we will proceed accordingly.
