I 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 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. (And don’t worry, we don’t charge for that.)
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 ounces. 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.
That’s why we recommend you consult a qualified Georgia or Tennessee car wreck lawyer as soon as possible.
Sometimes, it takes time for a clear picture of your injures to emerge. It is just not possible for you to know the extent 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. We will even tell you if we think you can and should settle your claim without a lawyer and tell you where to find out how to do it.
We’ve advised thousands of happy clients on settlement offers, so put our experience to work for you. You can reach us at (423) 892-5533 or fill out one of chat forms. We can help, even if you don’t hire us.
