What Will Happen After My Personal Injury Lawyer Sends a Demand Letter to the Insurance Company?

At The Gogel Law Firm, our St. Louis personal injury attorney knows that our clients partner with us to ensure they can reach the best settlement for their damages. This outcome happens in stages.

Once you meet with our Missouri personal injury attorney to discuss the details of your case, including the circumstances of the accident, your injuries, and potential legal options, you can determine whether we are the right fit for your claim. If so, we will establish a legal partnership.

From there, we will thoroughly investigate the accident, gathering evidence like accident reports, witness statements, medical records, and other relevant documentation to support your claim. Once we outline your financial recovery needs, we will begin negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company by issuing a demand letter.

Personal Injury Lawyer’s Demand Letter

Here is what happens next.

What Happens After the Liable Party’s Insurance Company Receives My Personal Injury Lawyer’s Demand Letter?

The insurance company will review the demand letter carefully, along with any supporting documentation provided by our law firm. This includes medical records, accident reports, witness statements, and other evidence of liability and damages.

The insurance company will investigate the accident and your injuries from their policyholder’s standpoint. This could involve reviewing medical records, obtaining their insured’s statements, and assessing your claim’s credibility.

The insurance company will begin negotiating with us to reach a settlement agreement. Once negotiations start, we will advocate to secure fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

The insurance company may respond to the demand letter with a counteroffer, proposing a lower settlement amount than initially requested. We will thoroughly review the counteroffer and advise you on whether to accept, reject, or counter the offer.

We will work with the insurance company to finalize the settlement terms if a settlement agreement is reached. This may involve signing release forms, disbursing settlement funds, and resolving any outstanding liens or medical bills related to your case.

If negotiations cannot settle, we will advise you to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The case would then proceed to litigation, which involves formal legal proceedings, discovery, and potentially a trial before a judge and jury.
