Maximizing Your Personal Injury Settlement

  • Personal Injury
June 28, 2024

Serious personal injuries not only impact your physical health—they also affect your mental well-being, finances, career, and the lifestyle you once enjoyed. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we understand your challenges and are committed to helping you secure the personal injury compensation you deserve.

While our team will do the heavy lifting, there are several preemptive steps you can take to streamline the process and maximize your personal injury settlement.

Get Medical Treatment

Even if you do not feel seriously injured, seeking medical attention is critical for your health and the future success of your legal claim.

Getting medical care creates an official record of your injuries. This is essential for establishing a clear connection between the accident and your injuries. Delaying can make it harder to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident instead of a pre-existing condition.

Contact an Attorney Immediately

Personal injury victims are often not fully informed about their legal rights. And without an experienced attorney, you may unknowingly say or do something that could jeopardize your claim. By contacting an attorney immediately, you can ensure that your rights are protected from the start. We quickly gather evidence, file legal documents, and negotiate with the other parties involved, including your insurance company.

Keep All Relevant Documents

Keep all records related to your injury, including:

  • Hospital bills
  • Doctor’s notes
  • Prescriptions
  • Receipts for mental health or therapy sessions
  • Police reports
  • Witness contact information
  • Insurance information
  • Lost wages documentation
  • Any related out-of-pocket expenses related to the personal injury

These documents will help establish the extent of your injuries and the treatment you have received.

Do Not Settle for Less Than You Deserve

Insurance companies often try to downplay or ignore the full impact of your injury to get you to settle for less. This is why our legal team is so valuable.

We understand that personal injury damages extend far beyond the obvious. We consider lost wages (both current and future), pain and suffering, psychological trauma, and anything else that may have been affected by your injury. This approach is critical to maximizing personal injury settlements.

When insurance companies push, we push back. Our attorneys will handle all communication with insurance companies, protecting you from unethical tactics designed to get you to settle for less than you deserve.

Act Quickly

While personal injury victims generally have two years from their injury to bring a claim, we know how important it is to act quickly. The sooner we build your case, the easier it is to collect convincing evidence. Why? Over time, witness memory fades, physical evidence can be lost, and documents may be more difficult to obtain.

If a negligent party has injured you, contact us immediately. We move quickly and file legal documents accurately. This ensures you have the greatest case and the best chance of maximizing your personal injury settlement.
