The legal process of pursuing a Wichita Falls car accident claim will vary depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding your case. In general, an experienced Wichita Falls car accident lawyer will take certain steps in the pursuit of your Wichita Falls car accident claim, including.
1. Investigating your accident
2. Evaluating your claim
3. Strategizing the best way to pursue your claim
4. Compiling evidence
5. Presenting a demand to the insurance company and attempting to negotiate a pre-lawsuit settlement
6. Preparing and filing a lawsuit
7. Working through the lawsuit and preparing for trial.
Often, Wichita Falls car accident claims are settled before a lawsuit ever has to be filed. However, sometimes the insurance companies are difficult to work with and filing a lawsuit is the only way to get you the compensation you deserve. If your case does go through litigation (the process of a lawsuit), there is a chance it could still be settled before it goes to actual trial. However, if the parties can’t agree on a settlement, a trial will be conducted and the outcome of your case will depend on the judgement of a jury.
These steps of pursuing a Wichita Falls car accident claim are detailed further in our other articles, blogs, and FAQs. It’s important to become familiar with this process if you are attempting to settle your case on your own or to ensure that the lawyer you hire is conducting your case properly.
