Settlement Offer From the Insurance Company? Let a Lawyer Review It.

by Staff Blogger | December 24th, 2018

If you were recently hurt in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have received or will soon receive a settlement offer from the insurance company. And while the money it’s offering you may seem substantial, there’s a good chance the offer is for significantly less money than what you truly deserve.

Insurance companies know that victims are often in shock after crashes and need compensation for their medical bills, especially if they’re too hurt to go to work. That’s why they take advantage of victims when they’re at their most desperate. Unfortunately, victims who accept settlement offers in the days or weeks after their crashes rarely get enough money to cover their long-term expenses, and they’re often unable to pursue additional compensation.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California auto accident lawyers know that insurance companies rarely treat victims fairly, and their priority is to find ways to protect their profits—not pay fair settlements. If you accept the insurance company’s initial offer, you may lose out on a significant amount of money that could have covered your medical bills and lost wages for months or even years to come.

Our legal team knows what fair settlements look like, and we know how to calculate your expenses to determine how much money you’re owed. If the insurance company’s offer isn’t fair, we’re ready to negotiate to get you the compensation you deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
