After your accident, the insurance company may try to get you to settle quickly. Why? Because you need money and once you sign, the insurance company is off the hook for good. There’s no going back six months from now and getting more money once all the medical bills come in. They won’t give you any. There’s no supervisor you can plead your case to when you’re having trouble paying your mortgage or keeping food on the table. Once you sign a settlement agreement with the insurance company, it’s over.
At Norris Injury Lawyers, we know the financial strain a serious auto accident can put on a family, especially one that was barely making ends meet to begin with. You can’t afford to be out of work. You don’t have tens of thousands of dollars tucked away for medical expenses. You’re like most Americans working hard every day to provide for their families. So we know how tempting it can be immediately following an accident to settle with the insurance company. Even though it’s not what you deserve, it’s money right now.
If you’re thinking about taking the money, do one thing first: give us a call. We’ve been through this with hundreds of accident victims, so we can offer you a perspective you may not have considered. If after talking with us, you still feel like taking the settlement offer, you won’t owe us a thing for the conversation. Isn’t your family’s future worth a short conversation? We think so.
