Question: I was recently in a car accident, and now the other driver’s insurance company has offered a settlement. Should I take it?
As an attorney, I can tell you that if the other driver’s insurance has already offered a settlement, that means that you’ve given them statements about what happened, and they see the liability on their driver’s part.
So I guess the answer to your question is: that depends on how much the settlement is. And you should talk to an attorney about that.
Believe it or not, there are plenty of situations where you talk to an attorney who looks at the offer and thinks, “I might be able to do a little bit better for you, but not enough to make it worthwhile. Take the offer.”
That happens. But it doesn’t happen very often: survey after survey, case after case, the value of an attorney’s services have proven over and over again that you do much better when you have a lawyer handle your case.
