At the Philadelphia personal injury law firm of The Levin Firm, your lawyer will prepare each and every case for a trial. The reality, though, is that most cases do not make it to trial, and are resolved by a settlement. A settlement occurs when the person or company who is responsible for your injury offers a sum of money in exchange for your promise not to pursue a trial and not to ask for any more money in the future. Settlement often happens after a number of rounds of negotiation, until an amount is reached that both sides consider fair.
When negotiating settlements, you need a lawyer who understands the nature of your case, and knows the difference between a fair settlement offer and an offer that is way too low to adequately compensate you for your injuries. Opposing lawyers and insurance companies will attempt to take advantage of unrepresented victims, offering them settlements that, while attractive, are much lower than the value of their case. Hiring an attorney will ensure that, even after attorneys fees are paid, you will receive a settlement that fairly represents the value of your case. At The Levin Firm, we have been settling cases for years. Our attorneys will explain the settlement process to you, and keep you informed every step of the way if settlement negotiations are undertaken. We know what your case is worth, and we will work hard to ensure that any amount you receive is fair and will fully compensate you for your injuries.
When you are injured in an accident, you have every right to bring a lawsuit against the persons or companies responsible for your injuries. You deserve to recover compensation for all of your injuries, including medical bills, pain and suffering, wage losses, property damages and other claims. You also have the right to have your case heard by a judge or jury, so that a determination may be made as to who is at fault in your case and how much you are entitled to recover for your injuries.
When you need a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury attorney to represent you, contact The Levin Firm, who represent every client zealously in order to obtain the best results possible in each case.
