Well, unless you have a lot of prior experience with insurance settlement offers for accident settlements, you probably won’t know. If you have a serious accident, you probably need fair financial compensation for your injuries to help you meet your expenses from that accident. And when you need to know if the insurance settlement offer is fair, you could benefit from the help of an experienced accident attorney on your side. Your accident attorney will have seen all kinds of accidents and all kinds of insurance settlement offers, and could help guide you regarding whether the offer you receive represents a just amount for the full value of your case.
At Denena & Points, we’ve dealt with all of the major insurance companies over the years on behalf of our clients. We’ve been helping clients make successful claims against powerful insurance companies for more than a dozen years. We can tell from experience and an in-depth knowledge of accident injury claims if the insurance settlement offer is fair and when it’s just an attempt to cheat you out of your rights. And we know that there are a host of tricks they can use against unwary and inexperienced claimants who don’t have the benefit of an accident attorney to protect their interests. Here are some of the tricks the insurance companies might try to use against you.
1. The insurance companies might try to convince you that you don’t have a successful case, and ask you to sign a release of your rights in the matter.
2. They might act friendly and sympathetic and ask you to describe the accident in detail for them. They’ll likely record your statements and then later use them against you to deny or discredit your claim.
3. They might aggressively badger you for statements that they can use, and insist that you don’t have a valid claim.
4. The insurance companies might offer you a quick cash insurance settlement for your accident that, in actuality, only represents a faction of the true worth of your claim. But once you’ve accepted the insurance settlement offer, you’ve released your right to sue for any further compensation.
Basically, if you’ve had a serious accident, and you really need the money you could obtain from a fair financial settlement to meet your accident expenses, you should not try to deal with the insurance companies on your own. They know that you probably can’t tell if the insurance settlement offer is fair or not. And they’ve had decades of experience learning how to intimidate claimants and undermine their claims.
