    When you’ve been in a car accident, you will have a lot of things to worry about.  While you are healing, your medical bills may be piling up. If you are injured, you may be spending unpaid time out of work.  You might also be without a car if yours was damaged in the accident.

    All of a sudden, you get a call from an insurance adjuster.  They offer to write you a check to get you to sign a waiver and release.  Should you take that first offer? No, not without speaking to an experienced personal injury attorney.

    Should I Accept a Settlement Offer from an Insurance Company?

    Getting a Fair Settlement Offer

    An insurance adjuster is hired by an insurance company to save them money.  A claims adjuster’s job is to settle an insurance claim for the lowest possible amount.  Insurance companies want to give the lowest amount of money possible because they want to save money.  They do not have your best interests at heart.

    The insurance company’s first settlement offer will be a low-ball offer that may not even cover all of your expenses or your damages.  Do not accept that offer. Do not cash any checks that they might send you. By cashing a check, you might be inadvertently waiving your right to file a personal injury claim against the insurance company.

    You shouldn’t have to go through the settlement negotiation process alone.  Speak to an experienced car accident attorney for legal advice about your situation.

    How Will I Pay My Medical Expenses?

    You might be worried that if you do not accept the insurance settlement, you won’t be able to afford proper medical care.  This is another thing that an experienced personal injury attorney can help you deal with.
