Once you get to the point of your personal injury claim where your opponent has accepted responsibility to pay compensation, how do things proceed?
In this episode of the Moray Claims podcast, Peter Brash of Moray Claims / Grigor & Young LLP discusses some of the main issues which come up – typically, where we are negotiating with insurers rather than directly with the opponent.
In this podcast, we consider matters such as:
- Who makes the first move in valuing the claim?
- What’s the likelihood of your valuation being accepted straight off?
- How far should you beef up the value of your claim in negotiations?
- What are some of the factors that can affect the ease with which your claim will be negotiated to a satisfactory conclusion?
We make frequent reference to examples and include a step-by-step illustration of how an actual negotiation of one particular claim got from the stage of initial valuation to agreed settlement figure.
