When should you accept an insurance settlement offer?


Whether the context is a motor vehicle accident or a medical mistake, if you have been injured by another individual’s negligence, you will have to deal with insurance companies. The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone.


Insurance Coverage Serves an Important Function

Don’t get us wrong, insurance coverage is essential to safeguard against mistakes. If to err is to be human, then chances are all of us have made a mistake in our lives. Yet when those mistakes occur on Illinois roadways or in the state’s medical facilities, a victim’s well being may be at stake. Insurance coverage is intended to help make the insured whole after such an accident. Unfortunately, disagreements often arise over issues of liability and damages.


Don’t Feel Rushed into a Premature Settlement

As a law firm that has worked in personal injury law for over a decade, our perspective on initial insurance offers is informed by countless negotiations. Although most personal injury cases are resolved by settlement, the path to this resolution is always unique. Sometimes settlements can be reached before a complaint is filed in court. In other cases, settlement is reached on the eve of a receiving a jury verdict.

Consult With an Attorney Regarding Your Damages

If you have been injured and are approached by the other party’s insurance representative, you do not have to decide on the spot. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss the compensation you deserve, as well as the relative strengths and weaknesses to your potential court case.
