What Happens If Settlement Talks With an Insurance Company Fail?

by Alex

If settlement talks with an insurance company fail to recover fair compensation in your New York personal injury case, you may need to consider other options for recovering the money you need to pay your bills. Our attorney may be able to develop a strong case to support a fair payout or take the case to trial and win an award in your favor.

At Shulman & Hill, we handle personal injury claims in New York City and statewide. We win cases for our clients through insurance settlements and trial verdicts. If you want to take legal action for a personal injury matter, you can learn more during a free consultation with our team. Call (555) 555-5555.

You Do Not Have to Fight the Insurance Company on Your Own

Generally, there are two ways to recover compensation after a personal injury in New York: Negotiate a settlement or win an award at trial. Negotiating a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company is the most common way people recover money for their damages. Still, it is not always easy to get fair compensation. The insurance company could deny the claim, downplay your injuries’ severity, or refuse a fair payout.

If you are handling this matter on your own, you may feel like you do not know what to do next. Getting fair compensation is important, so settling for less than you deserve should not be the only option. Working with an attorney from the beginning is the best way to protect your rights and interests and get justice. However, some people may choose to call on a lawyer only when settlement talks with the insurance company fail.

Our attorneys often take over when an injured party calls us because they have reached the end of the line with an insurance company. Most individuals do not have the knowledge, resources, and experience to manage a personal injury case. Shulman & Hill does, and we’re here to help.

Our Attorneys Can Pursue All Avenues for Compensation Simultaneously

At Shulman & Hill, our lawyers may pursue all avenues for compensation simultaneously. We often file lawsuits and prepare a case for trial while continuing to negotiate with the insurance company and seek a fair settlement. This may allow us to develop a strong case to support fair compensation, regardless of whether it comes through a settlement or court award.

Our attorneys know how to navigate the personal injury process in New York, handling many cases in New York City and across the state. We may be able to help you secure a payout in your case even if you have not been able to make any progress with the insurance company.

It Is Imperative to Fight for Fair Compensation Based on Your Case’s Facts

When an injured party files an insurance claim or lawsuit, the goal is to recover money to pay for their medical care, cover lost income, and compensate them for their pain and suffering. If the insurance company only wants to pay a small portion of their expenses and losses or denies the claim, agreeing to the settlement could leave the victim paying these bills on their own.

Our attorneys believe the careless or reckless party who caused the incident and injuries should be responsible for its related costs. This is why we fight to help our clients secure a fair payout based on their damages. We want to ensure every client recovers the financial recovery they deserve for their:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Income losses
  • Reduced ability to work and earn income
  • Pain and suffering
