What is a demand letter in a personal injury case? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A demand letter is a document that “demands” financial compensation for a correction of a problem or a wrong. In a personal injury case, the demand letter is used to present the facts of the case to the at-fault party (via their insurance company) in order to show them why they should provide that restitution instead of going to court to litigate the case. Your Virginia personal injury attorney is usually the one to send the demand letter on your behalf.
