I met with an individual who was involved in a pretty serious motorcycle crash. He asked me, “How long is it going to take to settle my motorcycle case in the state of Utah?” He had a lot of medical bills, he was missing work, and this was a big concern of his. I explained to him that the answer to that question depends on a number of factors. One of the biggest factors is what injuries you’ve sustained and how long it’s going to take you to recover from those injuries.
Once you have recovered from your injuries and you’ve reached a stable point, we communicate with your doctors and your medical providers, and we gather up all of the bills and records. We then use those bills and records to negotiate with the insurance company a fair and full settlement offer. A lot of times we’re able to get the insurance company to pay full and fair value on your case. In the event the insurance company is unwilling to do so, we would then push your case into litigation, and we’ll go and take your case to court and possibly to trial.
