You have suffered an injury during a medical procedure and have spoken with an attorney.
Based on your attorney’s investigation into the case it has been determined by your experts that the treating doctor did not following the standard of care in your situation, thus giving you substandard care.
Due to this bad care, you have suffered serious injuries.
THE SETTLEMENT PROCESS…
During the litigation process of your case your attorney may try to get the case settled.
This means that the attorney will talk with you about your case’s worth and a good settlement number for the case.
Once you and the attorney come up with a good number, it will be relayed to the defense attorney handling the case, or the insurance adjuster.
YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING WE WON’T PAY THAT!!!
In some cases the defense attorney or adjuster will flat out say that there is no way that they will pay the number you have proposed.
In other words you wonder if the auto insurance adjuster disrespecting your initial injury settlement offer?
This is because in some instances this is the start of the negotiation process, and as a result they want to see if you will go back on your number and lower it.
You have to remember that your case can be settled at any point during this process and your attorney will be negotiating on your behalf through this entire process.
