The Legal Process

The Legal Process
(What happens after the consultation/what do you & the client do?)

What happens when the insurance company won’t agree to settle for a fair and reasonable amount of compensation? When settlement is no longer an option, Jim Bizzieri will take your case to litigation to defend your interests and get you the results you deserve.

A full lawsuit can take up to several years of litigation, back and forth, before coming to a close. Bizzieri Law Offices will be by your side every step of the way throughout the long process to ensure your complete comfort and understanding during what can be a stressful and confusing time.
