Personal Injury Settlements in Gainesville, FL
Gainesville Accident and Injury Attorney
The vast majority of personal injury claims are settled before or during a civil court trial. Settling a case outside of court is often a swifter and more cost-effective manner in which to resolve a personal injury claim. A personal injury settlement is essentially an agreement between the plaintiff (injured party) and the defendant (the party that caused the plaintiff injury) that usually involves a certain amount of money paid by the defendant to the plaintiff in exchange for the plaintiff ceasing legal action and giving up all rights to future legal action for the same injuries.
When you work with a Gainesville injury attorney at Steven A. Bagen & Associates, P.A. we will work tirelessly to secure a fair settlement on your behalf. We will determine what your case is worth so we can approach it as though it were going to trial to be decided by a judge and jury, building a compelling case complete with physical evidence, witness testimony and expert witnesses to vouch for our findings. This helps us show the defendant (and the insurance company responsible for paying the claim) that we mean business. It may enable your lawyer to reach a better settlement agreement on your behalf.
Insurance Settlement Offers
Attempting to handle your own insurance claim may seem like it will save you money, but if you suffered serious injuries or if fault is in question, this may present particular difficulties. Attempting to prove the value of your claim can be extremely difficult. The insurance company may make you an offer that seems fair, but without fully evaluating the extent of your injuries and any future expenses or losses you may face may mean that the offer is actually far too low. An attorney is typically able to secure a higher settlement on your behalf, one that far outweighs any legal fees. Best of all, you only pay for our services if we win a settlement or jury award on your behalf.
