Should I accept a settlement offered by the other party’s insurance company?
You should always speak with an attorney before you accept any type of settlement offer. The insurance company will rarely have your best interest in mind when making an offer. It is important that you have a legal advisor advocating for you. Insurance companies hire lawyers to advise them of their legal rights, and it is vital that you are given the same protection. There are limited time periods in which lawsuits may be brought following an accident or injury, so it is especially important to consult with an attorney to preserve your legal rights.
