Should I Accept An Insurance Company Settlement?
Car accident victims may be injured twice: first by the careless driver and then by the insurance company handling their personal injury claim. Before you accept an insurance company settlement for injuries from a car accident, it makes sense to discuss your case with a lawyer.
At Godosky & Gentile in New York City, we offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your accident case and determine if the insurance company made you a fair offer. We offer this evaluation with no obligation to hire us. Call 212-742-9700 to schedule a meeting in our office or a location that is convenient to you.
You Only Have One Opportunity To Resolve Your Case
Following a serious car crash or other accident, you may find yourself in a difficult financial position. Medical bills can pile up, and you may be unable to work. At a time like this, a settlement check from an insurance adjuster can seem tempting. However, that settlement check can come with a high cost. The insurance company will likely ask you to sign a release absolving them from any future claims.
If you are still receiving medical treatment, you may have more questions than answers about how the injury will affect you.
- Will you suffer a lasting impairment from the accident?
- Will you need future treatment or surgery?
- Will the injury affect your ability to work and do the things you enjoy?
- Will you suffer from chronic pain?
The best outcome of any injury case is that you recover fully. Until you are sure, however, it is important to be patient and not accept a settlement.
Most personal injury cases do settle eventually. However, the insurance company has little motivation to treat you fairly until it knows you are represented by a lawyer who can try the case in court. At Godosky & Gentile, our attorneys have the experience and resources to maximize your insurance settlement claim so you receive full compensation.
