Settling Insurance Claims

Should I settle a claim on my own?

Following an accident you may be contacted by the other party’s insurance company. Should you speak to them and try to settle the claim rather than contacting an attorney?

When trying to settle a claim it is critical to gather as much information as possible. The other party’s insurance company is not looking out for you so the more information gathered the better. Some questions to ask are:

  • Will the settlement cover all of my medical expenses?
  • Will I need on-going or long-term medical care for my injuries?
  • Are any of my injuries permanent, or non-physical?
  • Has the injury permanently impacted my life?

All of these factors can affect your claim. It is possible to settle a claim without an attorney but it is advisable to consult a personal injury attorney.
