Three Things to Know about Injury Insurance Settlements
An insurance settlement is your only opportunity to get financial compensation for your accident injuries. As a condition for receiving your check, you are obligated to sign a release. This statement released the insurance company from any further liability in connection with your claim. If you have settled your claim for too little, there is nothing that you can do about it. Therefore, it is essential to have an attorney negotiate your settlement with the full knowledge of what your claim is worth.
Your injury insurance settlement will pay you for more than just the actual economic costs of your injuries. Of course, you are entitled to payment for things such as lost wages, medical bills, and property damage. You can also be compensated for the experience that you have endured as a result of your injuries. This includes payment for the physical pain and the emotional depression and anxiety that you are suffering through.
You Can Always Negotiate with the Insurance Company
Finally, you do not need to take the insurance company’s settlement offer as a given. You have the right to negotiate with them over your settlement. If they are not offering you enough money, you can tell them no and demand what you deserve. Hiring an experienced lawyer is the key to understanding how much your claim is worth. Without this knowledge, you may take the first offer and never even know how much money you left on the table.
