So you’ve been in an motorcycle or auto accident and the insurance company is offering you a sum of money to settle real quick.
Why shouldn’t you take the Insurance Settlement?
There are several reasons why you shouldn’t take it. But the first and most important reason is: several days, or even a week after a serious automobile accident, you don’t understand the extent of your injuries. The insurance company wants you to settle quickly because if they can get you to forfeit all your rights, for a small sum of money, it’s a guaranteed result for them. They would rather spend three or four thousand dollars and pay you that right now, than have to deal with a hundred thousand or more claim down the road. The fact of the matter is that settling quick is not in your best interest. Patience, diligence, and talking to a qualified attorney are in your best interest.
Insurance companies know that people who are involved in automobile wrecks are off-base, un-educated about insurance practices and procedures, and may not understand the full extent of their injuries. The insurance companies take advantage of this by contacting you and throwing money in your face in the days and weeks after a serious accident. Don’t be the victim of their policies and help put money in their pockets. Make sure that you go see an experienced personal injury trial lawyer, who can advise you of your rights, and give you the tools you need to get full, fair, and just compensation for a claim resulting from your automobile accident.
