An attorney letter of representation is correspondence, usually a letter, sent by the victim's attorney to the defendant or an insurance company advising that the victim is represented by an attorney.
When you write a representation letter to the insurance company in a personal injury, you want to
- make clear who the attorney and paralegal who will be taking the lead on the case
- set out the scope of the injuries to give the adjuster the ability to set early reserves on the case, and
- ask for the insurance policy limits.
Our law firm gets out an attorney representation letter the moment we begin to represent the client. You do not want to the insurance company continuing to communicate with your client because there is a fear the client will divulge information that could compromise the case.
