Should I take the settlement the insurance company is offering?

If you have been injured in a Massachusetts accident and incurred medical bills, property damages or lost wages, there is no doubt that you’ll want compensation, and a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer may be able to help you obtain a much higher settlement than what you would be able to get on your own.

You should almost never take the initial insurance settlement that the insurance company is offering you, as this is typically a low-ball offer for far less than what your accident injuries are worth.

In the days and weeks following your accident, you do not know how much your claim is worth as you do not know the full extent of your injuries. Each situation is different and the cost structure applied to one accident can vary greatly from another claim. Working with a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer can help you ensure all your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses are being fairly addressed in your insurance settlement.

If you and your lawyer decide that the amount offered is fair for your circumstances then you should absolutely take it. If after you and your attorney have determined that the value of your claim is far above the insurance settlement offer, your Massachusetts personal injury lawyer should begin the negotiation process until that fair settlement is reached or proceed with taking your case to court.
