Car Accident Settlement Advice
Advice for People Offered Car Accident Settlements From Insurance Companies
Insurance companies usually offer a cheap and quick settlement to individuals who have been hurt in car accidents. Insurance companies are out to close car accident claims as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, most injured people are in desperate need of money to pay their expenses. Please do not take a settlement before you are finished recovering from your injuries. Once you accept a settlement you will not be allowed to receive more money for your injuries even if you are forced to undergo expensive medical procedures and treatment in the future.
At the Ohio law firm of Rittgers & Rittgers, we highly suggest that you seek legal counsel prior to accepting any car accident settlement offer from an insurance company. With more than 30 years of experience, our personal injury attorneys understand the tactics and tricks that insurance companies employ when offering settlements. We can help you understand if the offer you have received is in your best interests. We are patient when dealing with insurance companies and work tirelessly in every case to optimize our client’s claim.
We strongly urge you to hire an experienced lawyer to help you through the insurance claim process. Even if you decide not to hire one of our lawyers, hire another lawyer with a good reputation and experience in injury cases. If you are currently speaking to an insurance adjuster about a settlement, please remember:
- You usually have two years from the date of your car accident to file a lawsuit in Ohio.
- Insurance companies are out to protect their own interests in every case, not yours.
- A full investigation and proper trial preparation will help you get the compensation you deserve.
In our experience, car accident settlements increase in value when the injured individual has a lawyer advocating on his or her behalf. Please contact our firm to speak with one of our lawyers if you have been injured in a car accident.
