In this video we discuss the five most important things you must do when negotiating a settlement in your personal injury case. 

Although it is not always recommended, sometimes it is appropriate for people to present their own personal injury case to the insurance company without the assistance of an attorney. If you have any questions about a particular personal injury case, you should consult with a trusted and skilled personal injury attorney to see if this is an appropriate avenue for you. If you are going to take on this endeavor, you want to make sure to you do it right!

There are hundreds of factors that go into evaluating a personal injury case. I’m going to just touch on the basics here. Each item will be described in more detail in upcoming video blog posts in this video series, so stay tuned for those.
