Bus Accident Settlement Offers
Injured on a bus? Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Watch this video to learn what’s important to know about bus accident settlement offers.
Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company for my bus accident?
I just got a call from a client the other day who was in a bus accident about a week earlier. She said to me, “I was on the phone with the insurance carrier for the bus company and they offered me a couple of bucks. Should I take the offer?” I first asked her, “Well, tell me about the case. What happened?” She told me that she was on a bus, that the bus operator went through a red light, and they were hit by a car heading across the intersection. She told me that she immediately had pain in her shoulder, her knees, her neck and her back, and that she went to the hospital and she’s begun the course of treatment with a medical facility. I told her, “You need to come to the office right away and don’t take that offer.”What often happens is that the insurance carriers, they want to get the case resolved as cheaply as possible and as fast as possible before the individual seeks the advice of counsel. They want to do it because they know if the individual takes the offer, they’re going to sign documents and they’ll never be able to file a claim down the road regarding the accident. The answer to the question is no. You want to seek the advice of counsel. Let an attorney get involved. Let an attorney communicate with the insurance carrier to make sure that you get the compensation that you’re entitled to.
