Why Not to Accept an Insurance Settlement for Your Accident or Injury
Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that do not make money by giving it away. They will do everything they can to limit their payouts and resolve claims as quickly as possible, often making a settlement offer before the full extent of injuries are known. That is why not to accept an insurance settlement for your accident or injury until you have received qualified legal advice. At the Larson Law Firm, P.C., our attorney can help you protect your interests and will work hard to help you get the settlement you deserve.
If you have been injured in an accident, speak with legal counsel before you speak with insurance companies. Contact our North Dakota personal injury lawyer online or call 877-641-3846 for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.
Protect Your Legal Rights
Insurance companies often engage in high-pressure tactics to try to get you to settle your claim for less than what it is worth. At the Larson Law Firm, P.C., our attorney can help you protect your legal rights in an effort to get you full and fair compensation. There are a number of things that you should not do until you have sought legal representation, including:
- Do not discuss your claim with the other side or their insurance representative
- Do not provide a recorded statement
- Do not give the opposing party access to your medical records
- Do not discuss the details of your case with anyone other than your lawyer
- Do not sign a settlement agreement without conferring with your lawyer
Once you have accepted a settlement, you cannot go back and seek more compensation if your injuries are worse than previously thought. Attorney Mark Larson has been negotiating on behalf of injured victims for more than 30 years. He will protect your legal rights and interests in an effort to get you the maximum amount of compensation you need in order to recover and move forward with your life.
