It is not uncommon in personal injury cases for insurance companies to approach the victim of the accident, in an attempt to get the injured party to agree to a quick settlement offer. These types of settlements are generally lowball offers that the insurance companies, or their adjusters, hope you will accept so they can close the books on your case, and pay as little as possible. Once you sign their papers, they are released, and you cannot go back and file suit against the company. We understand you may be tempted to accept a quick settlement, to pay your growing medical bills, cover your expenses and be able move on with your life. You should not yield to pressure, and need an attorney to assist you, as the insurance company is not considering your best interests – they represent the driver who caused the accident, not you. They are solely interested in protecting the corporate bottom line and staying out of court.
