Some Basics in Auto Accident Law Negotiations

  1. Demand what you want and why. For example, if you are dealing with a spinal cord and head injury and there is sufficient auto insurance coverage. Demand the dollar amount that you want and explain why. Explain your valuation of the auto accident damages, including injuries.
  2. If your demand isn’t met, then discuss why the auto accident case is being valued lower than your valuation of the auto accident damages, including injury.
  3. Always remain professional. Sometimes negotiations can lead to high tension moments, but always try and remain calm.
  4. Don’t show up with a knife to a gun fight. Do your research, know the law and know your auto accident case.
  5. Attempt to reach a settlement. Discuss perspectives related to the issues and communicate possible benefits and concessions that can lead to an agreement.
