If you’ve been involved in a car accident and you have the other party’s insurance company offering to settle your case, you probably should not accept any offer without first speaking to an experienced personal injury attorney.
An insurance adjuster’s job is to settle your bodily injury claim as quickly as possible and for as little as possible. They are not interested in doing what is best for you. They are interested in doing what is best for their employer, the insurance company they work for. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying injured victims as much as possible or even what is fair, they are in the business of paying injured victims as little as possible to make as much profit as possible.
An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to tell you whether the insurance adjuster’s offer is acceptable or whether you case is worth more or even much more. Even if you feel as though the insurance adjuster’s offer is acceptable to you, there is a high likelihood that the insurance adjuster is willing to pay more or that the claim is worth more if you file suit against the other party.
You have nothing to lose by talking to a personal injury attorney about your case. Most personal injury attorneys provide free consultations. At Lem Garcia Law, case consultations are always free and without any obligation. We are happy to make sure that you do not get taken advantage of by the insurance company.
