Very few cases end in a personal injury lawsuit. Lawsuits are expensive and take a long time. If your case can be settled reasonably without a lawsuit, that is generally the best tactic. But we cannot control the decision of the insurance companies. Some companies have begun to use a strategy where they make lowball offers in every case to weed out the people who are not willing to file suit. Sometimes, there is confusion within the insurance company and they don’t handle a claim properly. Sometimes, especially with high-value cases, they want to make sure the claim is worth paying before they settle.
Again, these situations are rare and out of our control. While we are aggressive and ready to take the claim to court, that is a decision that you, as the client, ultimately control. You will always have decision-making authority over anything that we do. All of our decisions are made together as a team.
