You are an accident victim or a member of a victim’s family, parent, brother or sister, son, daughter or grandchild. You have very likely experienced shock, physical and mental trauma, serious injury, loss of mobility. You may even have to deal with the loss of a loved one’s income. So the very last thing you want to face right now is the unknown territory of a legal challenge. It’s natural to want to get any claim put behind you.
In fact it’s very tempting to take the first offer that comes in. Don’t. Insurance companies are hard wired to make the best offer from their insured’s point of view trying to protect their insured. And for them, “best” means lowest, or put another way, the worst potential result for you. So take a different direction.
