What You Need To Know About Insurance Settlement Offers
Insurance companies do everything in their power to pay the minimal amount on personal injury claims and, really, any other type of insurance claim. They often create a settlement offer that may seem attractive to the claimant when, in reality, the offer is far below what the case is worth. The best way to ensure that you receive the full value of your claim is to consult with an experienced attorney.

Should You Accept A Settlement Offer?
The following are several key items we consider when evaluating the insurance company’s settlement offer:
- Your current medical bills
- Your potential long-term medical needs
- Your current lost wages
- Any impact on your future earning capacity
- Your pain and suffering
Injuries often evolve over time. While a neck or back injury might seem minor today, it could turn into a serious health issue later. It is important to have an experienced attorney to help you analyze and value the full impact an injury may have on your life.
