Should You Accept Your Settlement Offer? We Can Answer That.

Whether or not you should accept a settlement offer for your motor vehicle accident case depends on a variety of factors. No two auto accidents are exactly alike. The incidents themselves, plus their impact on the victims' lives, can vary dramatically. This means that even if your neighbor was involved in a similar crash and received a certain amount of money, the amount you deserve may be greater or less than that.

You need an experienced personal injury attorney who can carefully evaluate the details of your unique case and provide the trustworthy counsel required. At James F.

Questions To Ask When Considering A Settlement Offer

If the insurance company offers you a settlement, it is wise to consider it from all angles before accepting it. Here are a few questions you can ask:

  • Does the settlement offer take into account all your current medical expenses — which may include mileage to and from doctor appointments, prosthetics, the cost of prescription medications and more?
  • Does it account for any future medical expenses, such as the need for ongoing physical therapy or reconstructive surgery years down the road?
  • Does it fully cover your lost wages due to time off work?
  • Does it account for any wages you could have earned in the future but now cannot due to your injuries?
  • Does it reimburse you for property damage, such as extensive damage to your vehicle?
  • Does it compensate you for all the pain, suffering and emotional distress you have endured and may continue to endure?
  • If you lost a loved one, does the settlement compensate you for the loss of companionship? Does it fully cover all funeral expenses?
