Should I accept the insurance company’s settlement offer? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Victims should be cautious about settling too quickly, despite all the “tricks” the insurance company may try. One common trick is to offer you a settlement far less than what you deserve but tell you that you must agree to the offer immediately or the window will close completely. Insurance adjusters know that they cannot get away with these types of manipulations with victims when there is a car accident attorney advocating for them. To ensure your rights are protected, you should retain an attorney to represent you.
