If you’ve been in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or experienced a personal injury, you should always contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Our team of personal injury attorneys have a combined 35 years of experience resolving personal injury claims for our clients. We know how to navigate the complex medical, legal and financial implications of an injury case.
Not all legal teams are created equal, and it’s important that you find a team of lawyers that think resolution first, but are just as comfortable going to Court to protect your interests. This can be invaluable, because with the right litigators – insurance companies will treat your claim much fairer from the outset. The risk and cost of litigation is the great equalizer. If the insurance company knows your legal team is experienced in Court, a satisfactory resolution becomes that much more likely.
Just because a lawyer has experience doesn’t mean he or she has experience with Personal Injury cases. Personal Injury law is a complex patchwork of insurance law, contract law, business law and more. As a result, not just any lawyer is accustomed to handling the intricacies of such cases. When you meet with your lawyer for the first time, it is a good idea to find out what their experience is with your specific type of case. If you get the impression that they are unfamiliar with the issues you are having – you should keep looking.
At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable and confident with your personal injury firm and its team – so that you can have peace of mind that your personal injury claim is being handled right. We often tell prospective clients that it is much like working with a doctor – you want to find one with a good bedside manner that will treat you respectfully, explain things clearly and answer your questions. Having a legal team that is both compassionate and accessible is important. If you have a concern, your lawyer should address it promptly and to your satisfaction; you should be their first priority and never made to feel like you are asking too many questions.
For more than 30 combined years, attorneys at Sawan & Sawan have been working passionately to help individuals who have been wrongfully injured. If you have been injured as a result of an automobile, motorcycle or truck accident, a doctor’s negligence, unsafe consumer products, slipping on a hazard, or in a boating or an airplane accident, we can help you eliminate the financial hardship. We are dedicated to protecting your rights.
You never truly see the dark side of an insurance company until you need them most and they decide to put up barriers to the resolution of your rightful claim. This is where a team of insurance lawyers can be instrumental. We have experience representing clients in statements under oath and the processing of insurance claims. We don’t let insurance companies play games with your claim.
After a loss, the insurance policy dictates what obligations the insurer owes to you, and what obligations and duties you owe to the insurance company. The number one tool in an insurance company’s arsenal is what is called “the cooperation clause.” While every policy may have different wording, the vast majority of policies have a term that is similar to this:
In the case of a loss to which this insurance may apply, you shall… as often as we reasonably require… provide us with records and documents we request and permit us to make copies… and submit to examinations under oath and subscribe to the same.
At Sawan & Sawan, our insurance lawyers are frequently asked about the extent that an insured must cooperate with their insurance company during an investigation into the claim. For example, many insured ask whether they really need to produce wide ranging financial documents, tax returns and phone records. Frequently, insured individuals wonder why the insurance company is making their lives so difficult during an investigation. You don’t need to look any further than the “cooperation clause.” The number one way that insurance companies can trigger a contractual denial of your claim is by making cooperation cumbersome and difficult, and then claiming that you didn’t communicate.
When it comes to litigation, there’s simply no substitute to having zealous trial attorneys in your corner. We represent our clients in a range of litigation both as Plaintiffs and Defendants. Our pricing model allows us to minimize the expense of trial and our team works tirelessly to resolve litigation in the most favorable and inexpensive way for our clients. If the case simply cannot be resolved without trial, we stand at the ready. Our experience in the courtroom lets everyone know that we mean business.
At Sawan & Sawan, our approach to litigation is pragmatic. We see litigation as a tool in our arsenal, but not necessarily our first option. According to the most recently-available statistics, about 95 percent of pending lawsuits end in a pre-trial settlement. This means that just one in 20 civil cases are resolved in a court of law by a judge or jury. It also means that planning for a pre-trial settlement is a crucial component of any sound legal strategy. At Sawan & Sawan, our seasoned litigators use the bulk of the pre-trial preparation period to build a case that entices their opponents into settling for a favorable sum.
As business owners, we understand the drain litigation can have on valuable resources. We make all reasonable efforts to inform our clients of the estimated cost of preparing a lawsuit before taking a course of action – which helps to plan for costs of litigation. Our thorough understanding of litigation risks and the cost and benefits in any particular case makes us invaluable advisors in the civil process.
