After suffering a serious personal injury, many people think that the person who caused the injury will automatically pay for his or her medical costs and a little something extra for pain and suffering. Unfortunately, it is not this simple. People who cause injuries do not always have the money or insurance to cover such payments nor do they readily acknowledge their fault in causing the injuries. Even if they do, they may disagree about how much money you are entitled. At Ahmad & Associates, we aid in the following:
finding the people responsible for causing your injury
finding assets or insurance coverage to pay for the damages
gathering evidence to establish fault and legal responsibility
documenting and evaluating your damages
litigating your claim in court if the responsible party will not agree to a reasonable settlement
Some clients do not want to go to court. They are afraid of the time, cost and stress involved in getting a case to trial. Fortunately, the vast majority of cases settle out of court. Even if a lawsuit is filed, negotiations usually continue and most cases to settle before trial. However, certain steps might have to be taken before settling, such as answering interrogatories, producing medical records, sitting for a deposition, or undergoing a medical exam. Ahmad & Associates will explain all of these procedures to you and guide you through them to put you at ease and enhance the presentation of your case. And, most important, if necessary, he will be fully prepared to stand beside you and argue your case to a judge or jury when it is time for your day in court.
Not all cases are tried in front of a judge or jury. Some cases are resolved through arbitration, a much less formal proceeding where the parties select a neutral person, or a panel of arbitrators, to evaluate and decide the case. In other cases, a mediator is brought in to help the parties negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement. In any event, we will represent your best interests and advise you about the best course to pursue in resolving your case. They will also advise you about the timing of settlement negotiations and settlement offers. You should never settle before you know the full extent of your injuries to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
