Should I settle with the insurance company?
The Insurance Company Wants to Settle. Do I need to Hire a Mesa Accident Attorney?
Yes, and it has to do with a just settlement. If the insurance company offers a settlement, it may seem like an easy resolution to your claim, BUT the insurance company is offering a specific amount. It is something, but will the $ amount truly cover all your past and future medical bills or any other damages in your claim?
If you want to settle for “something is better than nothing” and take what is offered, then you probably do not need an attorney. Even if it may seem you don’t need an attorney to settle out of court, when an insurance company concedes that another party was liable, agreeing on the amount of damages may be complicated.
WHAT IS YOUR CLAIM WORTH?
When you hire an attorney at our personal injury firm, we help you through the process. Because we are experienced in personal injury cases, we will establish the amount of compensation that could prove to be huge on the impact of your settlement. Certain types of damages are tricky to calculate, and could be overlooked without an attorney. Potential future earning loss or pain and suffering, for example, should be included and negotiated with the insurance company.
An attorney will evaluate the claim in order to assess all present and future damages. An experienced lawyer will be able to determine how much your case is worth. Also, an attorney will protect your rights and provide the proper legal representation and negotiation when it comes to dealing with the insurance company.
The insurance company offers an initial settlement amount with the hopes that you will take it, no questions asked. This amount is always the smallest number they are willing to pay out. Retaining legal assistance will help you seek the compensation you deserve. Your job is to rest and recover. Your attorney’s job is to collect just compensation for your damages. In the event that the insurance company is not willing to budge on an initial offer, your attorney can file a lawsuit and bring the case to court, if necessary.
