One of the most common questions in a car accident case is when to settle the claim. With mounting medical bills and lost wages, a quick settlement might sound like the best idea to alleviate some of your stress. However, it may not always be the best strategy.
The insurance companies always try to minimize compensation. Accepting the first offer from them is probably a bad idea. A better strategy is to wait and hopefully settle for more substantial compensation, which may take longer. This requires gathering all the information and evidence you can obtain related to your accident before making the claim. The more information you have, the faster your case can settle or go to court, if necessary.
Consider the following questions before accepting a settlement offer:
- How has the accident affected your life?
- How will your injuries impact the rest of your life?
- Will you require surgery?
- How much will future treatments cost?
