Lawyers Explain the Personal Injury Settlement Negotiation Process
A major aspect of workers’ compensation, long term disability and personal injury cases is the negotiation process between the two parties. This negotiation process often determines the amount of money that an insurer will pay to settle a claim or a case. Since the vast majority of personal injury and other kinds of cases end in settlement instead of a trial, the negotiation process is primary determiner of damages and is usually handled by skilled lawyers in Northampton, MA or anywhere else. The negotiation process can take a very long time, sometimes years, depending upon many factors, including the willingness of the plaintiff to hold his ground until he or she gets a reasonable offer of settlement.
