We have worked with many health care professionals over the years and can guide you on how to handle medical care in order to build an injury case with credible evidence that a jury will find convincing. Your doctor and other medical professionals that assist you should have impeccable reputations and credentials.
A motorcycle accident attorney will also make sure you follow through with you medical plan of treatment because doing so is critical for making your claim stand up in court. If you fail to follow your doctor’s advice a jury will not see this as being worthy of awarding you the maximum amount of compensation. You want your personal injury attorney to be able to put facts and details in front of the insurance company to negotiate and be prepared to do the same with a jury, in case you have to file a lawsuit to get a reasonable amount of compensation. No jury will consider a case to be 100% valid if the plaintiff fails to follow their doctor’s advice. It may make the difference between being compensated and receiving no settlement at all. That’s why your medical treatment needs to be given proper diligence at every stage and insofar as possible, completed before a settlement is sought. A great lawyer will be there to make sure you are following through on recovering.
A great injury attorney will handle every case as if it is going to trial, even though most cases do not need to go to trial. The reason for this is the same as why you need to complete your medical care. If your attorney fails to convince the insurance company that you are prepared to go to trial, negotiations will not be nearly as fruitful. If the insurance company doesn’t think you are building a case to file a lawsuit, then they will not cooperate because they really don’t perceive the need to do so. You have to ask yourself why they would if they sense a weak claim is in the making. They are there to make a profit, and they are never going to pay anymore than what they think a jury would award you for compensation.
