Settlement Negotiations in Virgina Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury lawyers work for the client and must keep the client informed of all settlement offers in personal injury cases.

It is the practice of personal injury lawyers at Wilson & Hajek to keep all clients fully informed of all settlement offers in their personal injury accident cases. Once the medical records and doctor’s opinions are received at our offices in Charlottesville or Virginia Beach, we set an expected settlement range for the case. The seriousness of the injury, permanent injury opinions by doctors, the violence of the impact from the accident, any permanent scarring, cost of medical treatment, and the liability of the other party are all factors taken into consideration by the experienced personal injury lawyer. The lawyers at our office, who represent clients all across the State of Virginia, then call and discuss these matters along with the settlement range assigned to the case. Once the attorney has the approval and the authority of the client, negotiations begin on the case. Often the experienced injury lawyer is able to negotiate, or mediate, a full and fair settlement offer. The injured client is kept informed the entire time and is encouraged to input their thoughts in the settlement process. Once a final offer is set, the client determines to accept or reject the offer. If the offer is rejected the experienced injury lawyer will file suit (Complaint) in the appropriate court and proceed to trial, all with the approval of the client.

The above is how an injured client should be treated by their injury lawyer. The experienced injury lawyers at Wilson & Hajek follow this outline of how to successfully represent clients injured by the acts of others. That is why “We only do Injury Law”.
