Learn What to Expect When You Hire a Lawyer to File an ARC Airbag Lawsuit
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a defective ARC airbag, recovering your losses may involve filing a lawsuit. But, while this can sound overwhelming, it is important to understand what the process is really like before you make any decisions. When you hire a lawyer, your lawyer will handle the process for you—and most successful lawsuits settle without ever going to court.
What Can You Expect When You File an ARC Airbag Lawsuit?
So, what can you expect when you file an ARC airbag lawsuit? Here is a brief overview of the process:
1. You Will Get Started with a Free and Confidential Consultation
If you think you may have a claim related to a defective ARC airbag, your first step is to schedule a consultation with a lawyer. This consultation is completely free and confidential, and it is your opportunity to learn about your legal rights.
2. Your Lawyer Will Conduct a Comprehensive Investigation
If it appears that you have grounds to file a lawsuit, your lawyer will schedule a time to insoect the vehicle and conduct a comprehensive investigation. The purpose of this investigation will be to gather the evidence needed to confirm whether your (or your loved one’s) ARC airbag was defective—or whether other factors may be to blame for your (or your loved one’s) injuries.
3. Your Lawyer Will Determine What Company (or Companies) to Sue
After investigating, your lawyer will be able to determine which company (or companies) you have grounds to sue. Depending on the circumstances, these companies could include ARC and your (or your loved one’s) vehicle manufacturer, among others.
4. Your Lawyer Will Calculate Your Financial and Non-Financial Losses
Another key step in filing an ARC airbag lawsuit is determining how much you are entitled to recover. Your lawyer will use your medical records, employment records and various other forms of evidence to assess the value of your ARC airbag lawsuit.
5. Your Lawyer Will Negotiate for a Favorable Insurance Settlement
As we mentioned above, most successful lawsuits settle. With the needed evidence in hand, your lawyer will negotiate for a favorable insurance settlement on your behalf.
6. You Will Have the Opportunity to Decide Whether to Accept a Settlement
If the insurance companies make a settlement officer, you will have the opportunity to decide whether to accept. This is your decision, and your lawyer will help you decide what to do with your best interests in mind.
7. Your Lawyer Will Take Your ARC Airbag Lawsuit to Court if Necessary
Finally, if you don’t receive an acceptable settlement offer, your lawyer will take your lawsuit to court. While this won’t be necessary in most cases, it is important that you are prepared to fight for your rights if this is what it takes to recover the financial compensation you and your family deserve.
