Negotiating a Fair Settlement

While you recover from your injuries, let a medical malpractice attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins handle the insurance company on your behalf. We are familiar with the tactics an insurance company will attempt to use to deny a claim or minimize payout. Our attorneys will not back down and will not be intimidated. We know how to negotiate effectively and will pursue the fair settlement you deserve. If the claims adjuster refuses to make a reasonable settlement offer, we will prepare your case for trial. We will continue to negotiate with the insurance company during this time. Once we have filed a lawsuit, insurance companies are often more willing to make a fair settlement offer. However, if your case proceeds to trial, our legal team will be prepared to present a compelling argument before a judge and jury.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.
