Question:

Should I accept the first settlement offer in a truck accident case?

Answer:

Truck Accident Settlement OffersIn virtually all situations, we do not want our clients to take the first offer an insurance company gives in a commercial trucking case. The only time an insurance company will give a fair initial offer is when the compensation deserved by the client is far in excess of what the insurance carrier’s policy limits are. They only give a fair offer in those situations because they can be held responsible for additional compensation if they don’t do that in a fair manner.

In all other situations, the initial offer is going to be far lower than the client deserves and far lower than the insurance company knows the client deserves. This is how they start the negotiation process; hopefully, they work up to a fairer number from there. It takes an experienced personal injury attorney to know how these negotiations work and to present your case in a fashion that will get the insurance company to a reasonable compensation sum and maximize your recovery.
