We don’t care how nice the adjuster sounds; the insurance company is not looking out for your best interests. They are being nice to you for one reason and one reason only: they want to resolve your claim as quickly as possible and for as little money as possible. That’s how insurance companies make money, by keeping as much of it as possible. That’s why you should never be in a hurry to accept an insurance company’s offer without first reviewing your offer with one of our experienced attorneys at Dennis and King.
Insurance companies like to use the tactic of offering a quick settlement just days after your accident. They know you’re still hurting and may be a little desperate for some money because you’ve missed work due to your injury or lost transportation. This is when the adjuster pounces. They will offer to pay your ER bill plus a thousand or so dollars. This offer comes before you even know the full extent of your injuries. Sometimes it takes time for a clear picture of your injuries to emerge. It is just not possible for you to know the extent of your injuries, or the value of your claim within a few days or even a few weeks of suffering an injury.
If you contact Dennis and King, we will give you a free consultation and let you know if we think a quick settlement makes sense for you.
