When you are injured in an accident, an insurance company may try to settle with you quickly. They aren’t doing you any favors. Insurance companies are for-profit companies, so they often try to settle quickly and at a low rate. Accepting these quick settlement offers, means you waive the right to seek additional compensation.
While you may feel that your insurance settlement is sufficient, it’s important to understand that sometimes damages may not be immediately clear. Injuries may not show up for days, weeks, or months after your accident. Insurance companies and other organizations often don’t take individuals without legal representation seriously and typically offer low-ball settlements.
The best way to determine if you are being offered a fair settlement is to consult with a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney. During your case evaluation, your attorney will discuss the accident with you to determine if you can seek additional damages. If you are owed more than what is being offered by the insurance company, that same lawyer can start the process of getting you fair and full compensation for your accident.
