The Insurance Company Offered Me a Low Settlement, What Should I Do?
You should never accept an offer for less than you think your claim is worth without making sure there isn’t more money available to you. There is often more than one insurance policy that is applicable to you when you are injured in a car accident. What you settle for with one insurance company can have an impact on what you are able to recover from the other insurance company. Settlement offers can and should be negotiated to receive the maximum amount possible for your injuries and pain and suffering.
There are multiple factors that determine the value of your claim and insurance companies often will not consider everything they should unless they are forced to. Our goal at the A.W. Smith Law Firm is to maximize the amount of money you receive for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages resulting from an accident that wasn’t your fault. While we are able to settle most of our cases, we have a reputation of not backing down to insurance companies and taking cases to trial when insurance companies are being unreasonable.
There are situations where our attorneys are able to get more than the insurance policy limits. The attorneys at the A.W. Smith Law Firm will leave no stone unturned to make sure you are getting the maximum amount possible for your damages. Many times, people are reluctant to hire an attorney because of fees. Our attorneys only recover fees if they recover money for you. Our attorneys will also be straightforward with you about the value of your case and whether hiring an attorney makes sense in your particular situation.
If you are unsure whether to accept what the insurance company is offering you, or you want to make sure you are getting all you deserve, please reach out to the A.W. Smith Law Firm for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
