Accepting an early offer for settlement
Don’t settle a claim until you know you will be compensated for all of your injuries. Some injuries may not show up or reach their greatest level of discomfort until many days, weeks, or months after the accident. Any physical injuries you may have suffered should be treated before settlement. Insurance companies are notorious for offering “lowball” offers to see who will take the bait. These offers can be as low as $750 or $1,500 as full and final payment for your injuries, pain and suffering. Unfortunately, some people have accepted these offers thinking it was the best they could get. Those same cases could have fetched as much as $10,000 if they had just waited to consult with a lawyer.
