You’re a level headed person. However, you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t just. Also, part of being a level headed person, you’ve afforded the person or entity time to make reparations for the personal injury you have suffered. After a while, you decided that a demand letter is a prudent course of action to take. You send this well-written document in the hope it will convey your ultimatum in a friendly light.
What is a demand letter? Is it a legal document?
A demand letter is a letter informing the person, whom you addressed the letter to that you demand reparation for a tangible problem outlined in the letter. A demand letter can be written by a lawyer, but anybody can write them. It is worth noting that even after sending this letter it is not sending them a notice of being sued. A demand letter is not a legal document. This letter is completely outside of the court system. Once you file a lawsuit is when you involve the court and the legal system to resolve your dispute.
What if this is a personal injury demand letter to the insurance company?
The same rules still apply. The letter outlining how/why you were wronged, the treatments performed and their costs, lost income, and other tangible damages. Remember, the insurance company will use the letter to determine your claim.
There are several key factors you will want to remember when writing your personal injury demand letter. You will want to keep the tone formal, polite, and respectful. You will want to be as descriptive and detailed in your letter with all points of your letter. You will also need an exact date for action to be taken. Having a clear date for action is especially important, so you are not left in the dark wondering if the other party is making preparations.
