After you’ve been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have the right to file a civil suit against the person responsible.
The personal injury attorney who takes your case will gather all the evidence in your favor, and then will reach out to the representative of the insurance company that provides liability coverage to person who caused the accident.
Typically, the first contact will be in the form of what is known as a ‘demand letter,’ which details exactly what you are looking for in terms of compensation for your injuries.
A demand letter is the first step in trying to get the other side’s insurance company to compensate you without having to go to court.
Demand letters commonly include:
Sending a demand letter doesn’t mean that the other person’s insurance company will agree to things that your lawyer has asked for, and in fact, in most claims, this is just the beginning of the process.
The insurance company representative will likely come back with a counteroffer, or dispute some of the details included in the demand letter, and that usually leads to back-and-forth negotiations to avoid a jury trial.
Some victims of car accidents believe that their cases will be easy to resolve, but even in claims in which fault is obvious, the other party’s insurance company may not want its client to take responsibility for the accident. That’s why a strong demand letter is just the beginning in formulating a winning strategy for your claim.
