Car Accidents: Don’t Sign Your Life Away
November 15th, 2016|
Whether you’re buying a car or a new home, the deal isn’t done until you sign on the dotted line. Traditionally, that’s how business is conducted. You agree to terms and then you and the other party seal the deal with a signature. The same is true for injury claims.
After your car accident, the insurance company will probably make you a settlement offer relatively quickly. That amount represents what they are willing to pay you, not what you deserve. If you decide to take it, their responsibility to you is over. In other words, they are no longer obligated to pay you anything for your injury claim. But it’s not a done deal until you sign.
Sometimes folks call us worried that because they’ve already spoken with the insurance company about their injury claim that they are no longer able to get a lawyer involved. That’s simply not true. If you haven’t signed anything from the insurance company, you still have the power to negotiate a better settlement, even if you verbally agreed to accept their offer. But you need to get a lawyer on your side immediately.
