The Truth About Settlements, Verdicts, And Insurance Companies 

 

An insurance company will almost always offer a settlement when liability and negligence can be proved. However, often these settlements are not in reality sufficient to cover the extent of damage and the required care. More often it takes a firm known for its trial acumen and tough personal injury attorneys to force an insurer to pay what is fair and just.

Do Not Take Any Settlement Offered Without Speaking To A Lawyer 

 

You may be drained and exhausted and insurance companies often prey on this. If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury do not take the first settlement an insurance company offers. The initial settlement offer may seem like a lot of money but the reality is a careful assessment of the true damages suffered often garner a much higher settlement or if the case goes to trial a much higher compensation in the verdict. If an insurance company has refused to pay, it is still in your best interest to consult with a proven trial attorney. 

 

Your Right To Pursue Full Compensation
