Work Through Your Settlement With A Qualified Jacksonville Accident Lawyer

[portfolio_slideshow id=2600]
The two primary questions you’ll be asking your Jacksonville accident lawyer about your settlement are “How much can you expect?” and “How long will it take?” The answer to both of those questions depends on several factors. Your Jacksonville accident attorney will be able to guide you through this process and keep you informed every step of the way. Contributing Factors to a Settlement Conclusion The first thing you have to appreciate is that your lawyer will be doing everything within their power to settle your case quickly. However, every case is different. What might have occurred in the last case that your Jacksonville accident lawyer worked on won’t hold true for your case. Typically, the conclusion of a settlement will be determined by the number of files the insurance adjuster is currently dealing with. If they are overwhelmed, you’ll just need to be patient. Another issue your Jacksonville accident attorney will have to deal with is whether or not there has been any comparative negligence from your side. In other words, was the accident partially your fault? If so, your Jacksonville accident lawyer will have more challenges closing a settlement quickly. Additionally, you have to contend with how the insurance company works to settle claims. There could be many layers of review that your case will have to work through before the final resolution. Your lawyer will let you know the difference between standard operation procedures and stalling tactics.
