Question:

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

Answer:

Wrongful Death Settlement OffersI had a client ask me, recently, regarding a wrongful death case that she’s involved with, “Should we take the first offer that’s come in from the insurance company?” I told her there are a lot of factors involved in answering that question but, nine out of ten times, the answer is no. That initial offer from the insurance company is going to be low; it’s not going to be in a range that’s fair and reasonable to settle the case. Usually, what we have to do is depositions, discovery, and get to the courthouse steps. If a reasonable offer doesn’t happen at that point in time, then we’ll try the case.
