What Is Your Case Worth? Can You Negotiate On Your Own?
However, if your injuries are less severe, but still result in expenses and losses, direct negotiations between you and an insurer may make sense. This is usually the case when attorneys’ fees would take up too much of your settlement to justify hiring a lawyer. At Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, we do not accept every case. We take cases for which we believe we can bring a favorable outcome for clients, even taking into account legal fees. We do, however, offer free initial consultations with Mr. Montgomery for nearly all who inquire and request consultations.

His experience enables him to give you a good estimate of the value of your case. He understands that many people are overwhelmed and intimidated by the experience of negotiating with insurance claims adjusters. He can direct you on how to get a clear idea of what your auto insurance’s personal injury protection will and will not cover, for example.
The Dollar Value Of Your Injury Claim
Despite these precautions, it is important for you to know that many people have a much larger case than they first realize or suspect. In the early phase of recovery after an accident, it may be a waiting game before you know:
- If your neck injury will result in chronic pain
- If your broken bone will be followed by a disabling condition such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD)
Disabling side effects can be much more difficult to deal with than the original traumatic injury. Therefore, thorough, in-depth communication with your doctor is very important. Once you understand what your real losses will be, we can advise you as to whether it makes sense for you to negotiate directly with your insurance company or to leave the negotiations to a personal injury attorney.
