Common Problems You May Encounter In the Personal Injury Lawsuit Process

by The Beasley Firm  |  May 28, 2019  |  

As you go through the process of filing a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party, the last thing you want to encounter is a problem that can delay the outcome. Unfortunately, issues occur more often than you’d like, and they are something that must be dealt with effectively.

Understanding the potential issues that can arise is important. You should know what to expect and how to handle them so when they do come up, you’re prepared. Here are some of the problems you may encounter after filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Requests for Further Information

Insurance companies representing the responsible party (the defendant) want to save as much money as possible and hope that you’ll accept their settlement offer. In their effort to take advantage of your vulnerability, they may try to delay the process by requesting more and more information.

They are hoping that your need for finances in a timely manner outweigh your pursuit for maximum compensation. As such, they push to delay a decision, so your medical bills and lost wages continue to cause financial burdens for you.

Motion to Dismiss

Insurance companies know what they’re doing in personal injury lawsuits as they face them on a continuous basis. As such, they file countless motions to have these lawsuits dismissed before proceeding to the discovery process. A motion to dismiss causes even more unwanted delays.

When the insurance company files a motion to dismiss, you and your legal team have to show the judge why the lawsuit is valid and convince him or her to deny the insurance company’s request.

Settlements vs. Trial

The insurance company will tell you multiple things to convince you to accept their settlement. “You won’t be able to get anything if you don’t accept the settlement. Your claim isn’t worth more than our offer. You need money now and the settlement is your best choice.”

You should discuss all of these claims with your legal team to recognize what is true and what is false.
