Every case goes through phases. The first phase – the acute trauma phase – begins when the injury occurs. In the acute trauma phase, the patient is rushed to the Emergency Room (ER). At the ER, some injuries are inadequately addressed, or missed altogether. ER patients must be “triaged,” with the heart attack victim getting more attention than someone less critical. But over time, as medical professionals provide quality treatment, an injury case evolves from the acute trauma phase, into the medical plateau phase of the case. In the medical plateau phase, all injuries are identified and all injuries are relatively stable. And so, after the medical plateau phase of the case, Burman Law begins gathering information and supporting documentation to establish:

The settlement demand letter sets forth, in writing, the medical evidence of injury, and proof of damages resulting from the injury.
