Countering Low Ball Settlement Offers On Personal Injury Claims

11m | May 7, 2024

Having a lawyer by your side during legal proceedings, especially when dealing with insurance companies, is crucial for protecting your rights and ensuring fair treatment. When faced with lowball offers from insurance companies, having legal representation becomes even more important.

Insurance companies often aim to minimize payouts, offering settlements far below what may be fair compensation for your injuries or damages. An experienced personal injury lawyer can assess the true value of your claim based on various factors such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and future damages. They can then negotiate with the insurance company to secure a fair settlement that accurately reflects the extent of your losses.

A lawyer will have the expertise to evaluate the true extent of your losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future damages. They can work to secure a fair and just settlement that fully compensates you for your losses.

If presented with a lowball offer from the insurance company, it's essential to consult with a lawyer immediately. Remember, your lawyer is your advocate, fighting for your rights and best interests every step of the way.

In this episode, Andrew Iacobelli, from Iacobelli Law Firm, will help you navigate lowball offers on personal injury claims.

Insurance companies, often the opposing side in personal injury claims, have a vested interest in limiting the amount of money they pay out on claims. Dealing with unrealistic lowball offers requires a strategic approach to negotiations.

One of the key strategies is the importance of preparing every case for trial. By building a strong case that can be presented in court, the likelihood of receiving a fair settlement increases significantly. Learn about the importance of maintaining a consistent treatment plan and how being honest about symptoms and injuries can discourage lowball offers by creating risk for insurance companies.

When faced with an unreasonable offer, it's essential to stay composed and seek guidance from a legal representative. Having a lawyer on your side can provide valuable insights into the value of a claim and the best negotiation strategies to pursue.
