Question:

Should I accept the first settlement offer from an insurance company?

Answer:

I had a client who was in a very serious boating accident ask me, “Should we take an initial offer from the insurance company or shouldn’t we?” There are a lot of factors involved in answering that question but, typically, nine out of ten times, the answer is no, you should not. When that initial offer is made, we haven’t pushed the ball down the field very far, Boating Accident Settlement Offers and usually that’s what you have to do. You have to litigate the case and have depositions and discovery if it’s necessary. If a reasonable offer doesn’t come in at that point, then we’ll try the case, and we can do that for you. We’re board certified in civil trial, so if it’s a serious accident and we’re trying to get what’s reasonable and what’s fair out of the insurance company, we’re here to help you do that.
