What is a Fair Settlement?
Fortunately, most crashes in the United States result in minor injuries thanks to advancements in vehicle safety. However, sometimes you might end up with severe injuries, that require years of medical treatment. Even with minor injuries, you can see the bills begin the pile up all because of a crash that wasn’t your fault. It’s at this point where insurance companies offer you a pathetic amount of money, knowing that you might consider taking it, just keep your head above water. But should you?
Is It Fair?
The answer is most likely, no. However, if you walk away from an accident with no injuries, and you think the settlement is fair, consider waiting. It’s not a bad idea to get checked out by your doctor first. You should be 100% certain that nothing else is wrong after a crash before accepting any settlement.
If you are injured, the insurance company may include “future medical costs” in the settlement offer. This might seem like the insurance company actually cares, and wants to compensate you for your total damages. However, if you haven’t spoken with a doctor, it’s hard to tell what your future medical bills might include. Suddenly, what you think was a $1500 ER visit, turns into tens of thousands of ongoing medical care.
If you’re not sure if your settlement offer is fair, then you should reach out to an experienced car accident attorney. During a free consultation, a lawyer can tell you what a fair amount of money is for your damages.
