When you’re injured in an accident, your first step is to notify the insurance company of the party at fault of your injury. This must be done in writing. You’ll get a response called the “reservation of rights” letter, which is an acknowledgment of your notification, but which doesn’t assume liability for the claim. Then, after you complete medical treatment, you send a “demand letter” to the insurance claims adjuster with the financial details of your claim. The adjuster will then reply and will hardly ever agree with your demand. At this point, you can continue negotiations, or if you sense that they’re not going well, it’s time to let a personal injury lawyer step in to help. A skilled personal injury law firm like Gosanko & O’Halloran in Seattle has attorneys who are knowledgeable about personal injury laws and who will not be intimidated by the tactics of insurance companies.
