If you are involved in an accident and suffer property damage or injuries, you will rely on your insurance company (or the other party’s insurance company) to provide financial coverage. However, most of the time, the insurance company doesn’t want to pay a settlement, and will use tactics to avoid paying what you deserve. Our firm has a thorough knowledge of insurance policies. We can use our experience to fight for the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
You Don’t Have to Settle Right Away
After a car accident or personal injury incident, insurance companies may try to pressure you into accepting a settlement as soon as possible. They will offer you a dollar amount for the damages caused by the accident, and will try to get you to settle quickly without having to hire a lawyer or go to court. This may seem enticing to people who just want to put the accident behind them. However, it is a bad idea. If your injuries turn out to be more severe than you thought, or other unexpected costs from the accident start piling up, you will be unable to receive more compensation after signing the settlement release.
The insurance company won’t tell you that you can wait to settle. In fact, it is recommended that you wait until you have reached the point of maximum medical improvement (MMI), which is the point at which your doctor says you have recovered as fully as you are able, before settling with the insurance company. This can ensure you get the financial coverage you need for your medical expenses and lost wages.
