What do you do when an insurance company makes an offer to resolve your case that you believe is just completely unreasonable?
What should you do when an insurance company makes an offer to resolve your case that you believe is just completely unreasonable? This is a common question and a common problem that clients have to deal with in personal injury cases.
From the outset of your case, you should know that it is very likely that an insurance company is going to make an offer that will appear downright offensive when it comes to valuing your case and your claims. The question is how will you, and your lawyer, respond to that initial offer?
When a client comes to our office, I like to talk to them about low settlement offers from the beginning of their case. I will ask them whether or not they would be willing to reject low settlement offers and take their case to court if necessary. What I want to know is if they really believe in their case and will be willing to pursue it all the way until the end. Understanding my client’s willingness to fight against unreasonable settlement offers allows me to fully commit time, money and resources to getting the recovery they deserve.
So when you’re considering filing a personal injury claim, know that you will likely receive a low offer from the insurance companies. That is expected. With the help of your attorney, you can respond to the offer and continue building the strength of your case.
