Were you or a loved one injured in a serious accident? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
You need to get paid fast to recover from your injuries, pay medical bills, and care for yourself and your family.
At Dennis and King, our Chattanooga personal injury attorneys understand the pain and frustration you are feeling. To support our clients, we developed a process to ensure you get paid fast.
What are the five steps to getting paid fast?
- Complete medical treatment: You must complete your medical treatment and reach maximum medical improvement. Treatment for your accident-related injuries may be as short as one day or several years. But, if you suffered “soft tissue injuries”, the usual treatment time is about six weeks to four months. Worried about medical bills? Learn how our team supports you to get the medical treatment you need.
- We order your medical bills: Our team of experienced attorneys order your initial medical bills as soon as you hire us to represent you. Once you have finished treatment for your injury, we will order the rest of your medical bills and medical records. If you lost time from work, we will verify in writing how much time you lost. The final collection of medical records usually takes about four weeks.
- We write a compensation report: Once we receive your medical records, bills and lost wage report, we write a very detailed letter describing your injury and the pain and inconvenience you suffered because of your accident. This takes about a one week.
- We get you an offer: The insurance company responds to our demand for settlement for your injury case with a first offer in about two weeks to thirty days.
- We settle with the insurance company or go to trial: If a fair settlement is offered by the insurance company, we discuss it with you. In some cases, you will be satisfied with the offer and not need to go to trial. However, if the offer is not fair, we will file a lawsuit against the insurance company on your behalf. We aren’t afraid to go to trial to ensure you receive the highest settlement possible.
Keep in mind, in both Tennessee and Georgia, insurance companies owe very few duties to accident victims that are not their own insureds. The goal of all insurance companies is to pay you as little as possible. Hiring an experienced personal injury firm, like Dennis and King, is your best option for receiving a fair settlement.
