Question:

Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company for my truck accident?

Answer:

People often ask me if it’s advisable to take an offer directly from the trucking company early on after the accident occurred. I had a client call me the other day who told me that there was an offer made and wanted to know If she should accept the offer.Truck Accident Settlement OffersI asked her about the accident, how the accident happened. I asked her about her injuries. She had some significant injuries. The answer that I gave her was, “No, come to my office. Let’s sit down and go through this case. Let’s file a claim against the trucking company and the insurance carrier for the trucking company.”

You need to have competent counsel represent you and guide you through this process. Competent counsel will get you the compensation that you’re entitled to. What often happens is that the insurance company will try to get you to take an offer very early on before you’ve had a chance to speak with competent counsel to close out that case. What people need to be aware of or what you should understand is that if you accept an offer, you’re going to be required to sign releases. Then you’ll never have an opportunity to have an attorney go after the trucking company down the road.
