Ultimately when you bring a personal injury claim, the majority of cases are resolved through a negotiation with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Normally a lawyer can advise you as to the fair value of your claim taking into account all of your losses, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, to come up with a value or a number that would be fair to compensate you for these losses.
Normally an insurance carrier will work with your lawyer in an attempt to resolve the claim for a reasonable sum. The vast majority of cases never go to court. Our lawyers do everything in their power to resolve each case quickly for the greatest amount allowable.
Filing a lawsuit
If a resolution cannot be reached, then you must bring your case to trial and have a jury ultimately decide the value of your case. Steinger, Greene & Feiner is staffed with seasoned trial lawyers who won’t hesitate to fight for your best interest.
Discovery / Depositions
Your legal team gathers every bit of evidence possible to prepare for your case, should it go to trial. This may include consulting with experts, examining traffic camera footage, deposing you and the at-fault party, and other necessary steps to build a strong case.
Mediation / Arbitration
Before you go to trial, your case may go before a mediator who is a neutral third party. During this process, both sides will be presented and the mediator will make recommendations for settlement. Often, this is when the insurance company realizes the value of the case, and decides to settle before court. Arbitration is a very similar process and is generally required if you are collecting from your own insurance company, not at-fault party’s insurance company.
This is the final step in getting you the compensation you deserve. One of our top trial attorneys will present all of the gathered evidence to a jury of your peers who will decide how much compensation is fair.
