If our firm accepts your case it is because we believe it has legal merit and that you deserve a trial if we are not able to reach a settlement. We often file a petition before we even begin negotiating, this way if negotiations don’t work out then we will already have a trial date on file to work towards. We will get your claim moving for you. Sometimes the insurance company for your employer takes extended time gathering information and investigating the claim which in turn, slows down the process of your claim.
Once we start handling your case for you, you will no longer have to deal with the insurance company directly and we will be able to manage your case in a timely manner. If we decide to file a petition for your case, this moves your claim right into the discovery phase. Discovery allows both parties to discover all evidence and what the other side plans on presenting at trial. This is a faster way of gathering in depth information about the case from both sides rather than waiting around for the insurance company to complete their investigation.
