Our Approach to Settlements and Trials
We prepare each case as if it will go to trial. We gather all the evidence necessary to walk into a courtroom and prove every part of the case. This includes taking photographs of the scene, hiring experts, analyzing police reports and getting statements from anyone who witnessed the accident.
Before filing a lawsuit, we will attempt to negotiate a personal injury settlement with the insurance company of the person who harmed you. At the conclusion of your medical treatment, when we have a complete understanding of the extent of your injuries, we will present our evidence to the insurance company. When presented with this kind of thorough documentation and other evidence, they are more likely to offer a fair settlement.
Settlement is often beneficial because you will not have to wait until the end of a trial to recover compensation. A trial may take place a year or more after you are injured, delaying your recovery. In addition, it is difficult to predict how a jury will react to your case, even a very strong one. In every case, we strive to win a favorable verdict or settlement.
You Control Your Case
When the insurance company offers a settlement, it will be your choice to accept it or not. If you reject the offer, trial lawyer Jim Rosato will file a lawsuit on your behalf. Once suit is filed, the insurance company will investigate the case further.
Settlement always remains a possibility anytime before trial. Sometimes, the insurance company will complete its investigation, realize how strong your case is, and offer another settlement. Again, it is your choice to accept or reject the offer.
Mediation and Arbitration
At Rosato Law Offices, we frequently settle cases through mediation or arbitration. For claims of less than $50,000, arbitration is mandatory in Pennsylvania. No matter the amount of the claim, mediation and arbitration can be useful ways of resolving the case without trial. If you choose mediation, we hire former judges and attorneys who will facilitate negotiations with the insurance company with the goal of settling the case.
