Personal Injury Settlements

Should you accept the first offer?

When an individual is injured through the negligence of another, this becomes grounds for a personal injury case. In these situations, a settlement can be reached that pays the injured party for current medical expenses, loss of wages, future medical treatment and other costs related to the injury. In some instances, a person will be compensated for their pain and suffering. If we can show that the injury was intentionally inflicted, further damages may be awarded. While you may have a perfectly valid claim, there commonly exists a barrier to getting paid the full compensation that you are owed.

Frequently, an insurance company will rush to offer you a settlement which, at first, might seem like a good offer. We have over 70 years of combined experience in the area of personal injury and our best advice is to quickly contact an effective Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured. The offer from the insurance company may not be what it appears. They may be attempting to get you to settle for an amount that is well below what you should be paid. Unfortunately, many people have found themselves in the position of settling with the insurance company only to find that the amount paid does not cover their expenses.

Insurance Companies & Your Personal Injury Attorney

Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. have seen the tactics insurance companies use to delay or lower the amount of payments to injury victims. An insurance adjuster knows that many people will react to being offered a settlement amount, only to have it taken away. An individual can be threatened with a reduction in their settlement amount if they hire an attorney. Insurance companies are well aware that the average settlement amount is significantly increased when a skilled lawyer is involved in your case. Adjusters use many delaying tactics designed to wear you down and get you to agree to a low settlement amount.

With proper research, preparation and negotiation, insurance companies can be made to settle for the amount of compensation you are factually owed per the law. Contact us today.
