In most cases, an insurance claim for a serious car accident is worth much more that an insurance company offers the accident victim. This is especially true of an initial offer from a car insurance company. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. They have an incentive to pay out as little as possible.
Our advice is to at least meet with an experienced car accident attorney before you agree to anything an insurance company offers after a car crash.
One of our attorneys at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe can review the circumstances of your accident and any offers you have received, and discuss the options available to you. This is a free meeting for free legal advice with no strings attached.
In the meantime, don’t sign anything from any insurance company. Once you sign those papers, you may be giving up your rights.
