Recently I represented a young woman who was rear-ended. Her injuries were not serious but she still sustained injuries due to the negligence of another party. The insurance carrier was very aggressive, even with me, offering $2,500, $3,500 and then $6,500 before I even had the client’s medical records. In only a few short months later, I was able to settle her case for $15,000. This is one of many cases with a similar scenario.
Don’t allow an insurance company to bully you and it is not always in your best interests to take the first offer.
As a personal injury attorney, I consider myself a champion for my client. No matter the size of the case, I am the voice for the vulnerable, injured person. Many insurance companies seek to take advantage of such people and that’s where we come in and help our client.
