When a major accident happens, it takes all resources to care for those who have been hurt, to clean up the scene and to keep traffic moving. After a crash, everything might seem like a blur to you, and that’s because things will probably happen quickly. You may call 911, be rushed to the hospital and have very little time to speak with anyone about what happened.
It’s important for you to remember the details of the accident, so you can provide those details to your attorney. Your attorney will be able to help you negotiate with the other party’s insurance, so you can focus on your recovery instead of the legal challenges that can come with negotiating a settlement.
What should you expect when receiving a settlement offer?
When you’re working with an attorney and the other party’s insurance, or they directly, offers you a settlement, your attorney will be the one to receive that notice. They will review it and let you know that an offer has been made.
When you review the claim with your attorney, you should focus on how much debt you’ve accrued as a result of this injury as well as the amount of money you may spend on it in the future. On top of that, you’ll want to consider how the injury affects you and if there is enough compensation being provided in consideration of that.
