Establishing Negligence in a Way That Insurers and Courts Need to Hear It
Personal injury law consists of clearly defined rules and procedures. It is not enough to say that the driver of another car hit your car, and so that the driver owes you. Rather, you must establish that the other driver was negligent.
How this argument must be proven follows:
- Establish the other driver owed you a duty to behave in a way that would keep you free from harm or injury.
- Demonstrate that the other driver failed to deliver on this duty of care.
- Prove that this failure caused the accident that caused your injuries.
- Illustrate that the accident and your injuries resulted in recoverable damages.
Once the car accident lawyers at Zanes Law have established this “duty of care,” we will proceed with identifying and valuing your damages. We present your damages to the at-fault party’s insurance company and the process of settlement negotiations beings.
Warning: Talking to the Insurance Companies is Risky Business
Most people would rather have a root canal than deal with an insurance adjuster. So when the phone rings, and it is the insurance company for the negligent driver, and they are cheerfully offering you a settlement, you could not be more surprised or more thrilled.
Make no mistake. This is a low-ball offer. The insurance adjuster has the basic facts of the accident, and they have done this work long enough to know your damages are worth a great deal more than what they are offering you.
The more you share with the insurance company when they call, the more information they will have to use against you when you realize your case is worth more and try to get them to increase their offer.
Remember, insurance is a business, and the adjuster’s job is to pay you as little as possible. They have sophisticated technology and loads of experience on their side, and if you go it alone, you will come out losing.
