When you are injured in a car accident, you may be surprised by how quickly insurance offers to settle. Bear in mind that if you accept an insurance offer, you waive your right to seek additional compensation. The insurance companies know this. That’s part of their motivation.
What Are You Owed?
The truth is, your insurance settlement may be sufficient. This is particularly true in cases where injury is minor and property damage is negligible. Is that the case with your accident? Are you sure?
The best way to determine if you have cause to file suit and seek additional damages is through a case evaluation with a qualified and experienced car accident lawyer. During this visit, you will be able to discuss your accident and provide information that your potential lawyer can use to investigate your claim.
If you are owed more than what you are being offered, that same lawyer can start the process of helping you get fair and full compensation. Unless you do not feel comfortable with that particular attorney, in which case you should discuss your options with someone else.
