The Injury Settlement Process

You Were Injured in an Accident – Now What?

A serious injury resulting from an accident can be an overwhelming experience. Not only have you begun a long recovery process, but you will likely face financial burdens that will only add stress to a difficult situation.

During this challenging time, you will also begin to hear from insurance companies that will start investigating your accident. You should NEVER give a recorded statement to any insurance companies or sign any insurance documents, including from your own insurance, without first speaking with a Clarksburg personal injury attorney.

Step 2: Seek Medical Treatment

After an accident, it is important that you seek medical treatment immediately. When meeting with a doctor, be sure to discuss any symptoms or complaints that you may have, no matter how insignificant they may seem now. Not only will this provide a clear picture to your medical provider, who is deciding on the best course of treatment for you, it will also begin the documentation needed by the insurance company to evaluate your potential claim.

The most important advice we can give to you is to follow ALL of your doctor’s treatment plans, including every follow up appointment and referral.

Step 3: Contact Our Office

The Miley Legal Group offers a number of resources for you to review and begin making important decisions for your claim, including which attorney to hire. Our FREE CONSULTATION gives you an opportunity to have a discussion about your case with one of our personal injury attorneys in Clarksburg.

During your free consultation, we will begin to review your case and discuss your options with you. We want to ensure that you have the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.

Step 4: Working on Your Case

After you sign with our firm, we immediately begin to process your case. This process includes:

Step 5: Communication

Communication with our clients is key to our success.

Step 6: Settlement

Communication with our clients is key to our success.

Step 7: Possible Lawsuit

If there is no agreement on a settlement amount, a lawsuit will be filed after final discussions with you and your attorney.

Keep in mind that over 97% of all cases settle without going to court. Even though a case is filed, it could still settle before final court proceedings. However, the legal process will begin, including court filings, depositions and other steps that you will discuss with your attorney.

Step 8: Post Settlement

After a settlement has been accepted (or a lawsuit completed in your favor), we begin to process and finalize your case. During this phase, what we refer to as the Tiger Advantage, kicks in.

We begin to negotiate all liens and medical bills to increase your final recovery.

All stages of the claim are reviewed to ensure all available funds were accessed for you.

Settlement documents are processed and payment is received from the insurance company (Any checks are held in our trust account for 7 business days).

A disbursement is prepared to tell you how the funds are distributed and who gets what amount.

You receive your final payment and copies of relevant documents. You will also be asked to provide our firm with a final review of our services that will eventually be shared with those in situations similar to yours.
