Should I Settle With My Insurance Company?

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents and insurance settlements, a general rule of thumb seems to be that the sooner you settle with an insurance company, the less you will receive. It generally takes time to reach the strongest attainable settlement for reasons including:

  • It takes time for doctors to have a clear idea about a recovering accident victim’s long-term prognosis.
  • It takes time to gather evidence to use in determining the cause of an accident.

For your own sake, do not to settle too quickly with an insurance company after a car or truck accident or a slip-and-fall accident. Contact Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, first. Be wary of insurance claims adjusters who arrive soon after an accident with a clipboard and checkbook in hand. You can be sure that they are interested in limiting payout of benefits — not in maximizing the amount of help they can extend to you.

In the meantime, however, do your part to strengthen your injury claim or lawsuit:

  • Get the medical treatment that you need. Follow doctors’ orders as closely as you can.
  • Work closely with a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer to develop a strong case for compensation for your losses.
