How to Deal With Insurance Claims and Settlement Offers

Insurance companies are in business to make money. They want to pay you the least amount possible and hold on to as much of their profits as possible.  In order to make a claim for your damages, you will need to speak with the other parties’ insurance company following the accident. 

We recommend you give insurance companies as little information as possible. The insurance company will ask you questions that may seem confusing or that you cannot answer accurately. They will encourage you to make estimations or guess at what happened. Unfortunately, those answers can be used against you late to try and lower your compensation or avoid paying you all together.

We recommend you work with an attorney. At the very least, you should contact a personal injury attorney to obtain counsel before you accept a settlement offer. The earlier you speak with a lawyer, the less likely it is you will say or do something that could hurt your case.  An attorney will make sure your rights are protected and you obtain full value for your injuries.
