The Personal Injury Claim Process
When you work with Petersen Johnson on your personal injury case, you can be confident you are getting the highest quality personal service and legal expertise available in Phoenix. For more than 20 years, we have been walking clients through the personal injury claim process to help them understand their case and what they may be entitled to. We establish trust through every step with open communication and transparency.
Once you call Petersen Johnson, we will take the actions below to get you what you deserve:
1. Initial Meeting/Information Gathering Before taking any action, we gather all of the facts of the case and determine an action plan. As soon as the injury happens, a partner at Petersen Johnson will meet with you to offer advice on what to do next. Our partners are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can meet anywhere in the Phoenix area when it is convenient for you.
2. Medical Treatment We understand injuries only heal with proper treatment and we partner with a number of doctors throughout the Valley who will provide care and wait for payment until your case settles. Once your medical treatment is complete, your condition has been stabilized, and all medical evidence is available, Petersen Johnson will evaluate your case.
3. Demand After all medical evidence has been reviewed, our attorneys will make a demand to the insurance company regarding your case. We do everything we can to move your case toward settlement as quickly as possible.
4. Settlement Our goal is to settle with the insurance provider, but only if fair compensation is offered. The litigation process can be costly, so settling the case for a reasonable amount is usually in the best interest of both the client and insurance company. However, it is sometimes necessary to litigate your case.
