Negotiating Personal Injury Claims

If you have been injured in the past or are familiar with the personal injury of a friend or family member, you are likely aware of the 
lengthly delays created by attorneys who prefer to litigate the case in court instead of engaging in meaningful negotiations with the 
insurance company.  With extensive experience in research and writing, Attorney Soloman draft letters that present your case in a very persuasive manner.  Attorney Soloman's demand letters prepare the reader [insurance adjuster] by offering a brief statement of the incident, followed by a lengthly interpretation of your treatment, recovery, and potentially permanent disabling injuries, followed by a conclusion offering your final prognosis and a demand for damages.  Attorney Soloman's demand letters have proven results in not only opening the door to negotiations, but to also acquire settlements in a shorter* period of time.

​*This abbreviated period of time is compared to the time it would take to fully litigate the claim.
