How Should I Respond to a Low-Ball Insurance Settlement Offer?

After an unexpected accident caused due to no fault of your own, you will likely find yourself in talks with an insurance company. Soon enough, you’ll be given an offer and may even be pleased with it initially. If the proposed amount is enough to cover a majority of your expenses, should you accept it? Our personal injury attorneys of The Law Office of Michael R. Green, PLLC have an answer to this question, and it is a resounding no.

An easy mistake to make for most people is to accept the first offer, only to find out it is not nearly close to what you could have received. Had you waited a little longer, you’ll find you could have obtained a better settlement. When making this decision, it is vital you consider the nature of your injuries. Consider this: what if they haven’t fully presented themselves yet? Some injuries have the potential to become complicated over time, which means you may have unexpected needs down the line including surgery, physical therapy, medication, hospitalization, etc.

A key fact to remember is an initial offer will be a lowball one, meaning it will intentionally be low in anticipation of rejection. Insurance companies start low because they expect you to deny their opening offer. In fact, insurance companies foresee being forced to offer higher and higher numbers the more you negotiate.
