Bicycle Accident Settlement Offers
Watch this video to learn why accepting bicycle accident settlement offers from an insurance company will not result in maximum compensation.
Should I accept the first settlement offer from an insurance company?
I had a client in a very serious bicycle accident ask me recently, “Should we take an initial offer that came in from the insurance company?” There are a lot of factors involved in answering that question, but typically, nine out of ten times, the answer is no. When that initial offer is made, we haven’t pushed the case very far, and usually you have to litigate the case. You have to have depositions, discovery, and take it to the courthouse steps if necessary. If a reasonable offer doesn’t come in at that point, then we’ll try the case.
