After you seek medical attention, it is important for you to hire a personal injury attorney quickly if you are seriously injured. Insurance adjusters are acting quickly to gather evidence that benefits the defense. You need to act quickly to hire an attorney to represent your interest. After The Hendon Law Firm, LLC is hired; the firm will notify the at-fault driver and his or her insurance carrier of the representation. A letter will be sent to the insurer requiring them to disclose the amount of their driver’s policy limits. The police crash report, 911 calls, dash cam video, and any surveillance video will be obtained. Witnesses will be interviewed.

At this point, it will be important for the client to follow the doctor’s orders and keep the medical appointments. Once you are finished treating, all of your medical records and bills relating to this accident will be ordered. Using these documents and personalizing your story of loss, a demand package will be sent to the adjuster. If the adjuster refuses to pay what your case is worth, a lawsuit will be filed.

After the lawsuit is filed, formal discovery will be commenced including filing interrogatories, request for production of productions, request for admissions and depositions. The case is prepared for trial and it eventually goes to court. During this process, Zack Hendon takes the time necessary to discuss the process with you and make you feel comfortable with it, including any major cost involved.
