Healing can take a long time after an injury. Soft tissue injuries can take weeks to months to heal. More serious injuries like broken bones or internal injuries requiring surgery can take months or years. As treatment progresses, it’s important to document the process and the bills as well.
Within 30 days of receiving all the bills and notes, North Metro Litigators will create a spreadsheet documenting all the relevant expenses and ask you to proof it for us. Within 30 days of your acceptance we’ll draft the demand to be sent to the responsible parties. This is where we explain what happened, what costs you’ve incurred and expect to incur, and what we expect the responsible parties or insurance companies to do to make things right.
After the responsible parties have received our demand letters, we’ll engage in negotiations to try to come to an agreement that satisfies all parties, including you. You’ll be an active participant in this, but don’t worry, North Metro Litigators will represent you vigorously and we’ll do the heavy lifting. Our job is to be your advocate, but you’re always in charge.
The lawsuit is filed. We’ll work with you to document your injuries and the responsible parties, and file the suit with the court. The suit tells the court how you’ve been hurt, who is responsible, why, and what you are asking for in compensation.
The responsible parties are notified that the lawsuit is filed.
North Metro Litigators will engage with the defendant’s attorneys to exchange evidence about the case. The court will compel the defendants to release relevant evidence, and we handle the court for you.
There will be meetings with you and the defendants where the attorneys ask questions to determine exactly what happened through everyone’s perspectives.
North Metro Litigators and the defendant’s attorneys will discuss terms about how the case may be settled out of court.
We will vigorously pursue everything you’re entitled to in mediation, but sometimes the defense just doesn’t want to resolve things. In this situation, we will argue your case to a jury to make sure that you are made as complete as we possibly can.
