Mr. Byars will not settle your case without your understanding, consent, and authority. Generally, after he has determined the nature and extent of your injuries, (which is determined after you receive reasonable and necessary medical treatment), he will discuss with you a calculation of your damages, which will include components for:
a) medical expense (in the past and/or in the future);
b) pain, suffering, and mental anguish;
c) permanent impairment or disfigurement if any; and,
d) lost wages or loss of earning capacity.
After we have discussed fully your injuries and economic damages, he will sit down together or have a telephone conference to agree upon an amount to be requested, understanding that there will be some negotiations which may take place before a settlement is reached.
In the event a settlement is not negotiated by agreement, your case will proceed to trial. Rest assured that we will be prepared for presentation of the case at trial, if necessary. In such event, he will be in increased contact for trial preparation, and you will certainly be aware of the trial date well in advance of trial.
