I recently had a potential client come in with a settlement offer from their insurance company and ask me if they should take it. Typically, the amount of money that an insurance company initially offers a person who’s been injured is not worth taking. They don’t care about the value of your client. They just want to try to settle it quickly, fast and as cheap as possible, with no appreciation of the injuries you received or the damages you sustained in the past and in the future.

It’s important that you get a lawyer to represent you because the insurance companies need to know that your injuries have value, and that you’re willing to prosecute that to make sure they appreciate it and compensate you fairly and justly. Therefore, the usual answer I give to a client who asks if they should accept the first insurance settlement offers, is no.
