Should I Accept a Settlement from the Insurance Company?
Shortly after filing a wrongful death claim, the insurance company may contact you to offer you a settlement. Many people immediately accept this offer because they think they are lucky to receive anything, or because they believe it is fair. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.
Insurance companies contact loved ones shortly after the death, hoping they don’t realize how many losses they will incur as a result of the death. If you agree to the settlement offer, you are barred from receiving any compensation in the future, even though the settlement will likely not be enough to cover the full amount of losses.
Our compassionate wrongful death attorneys can review any settlement offer you receive and provide guidance on what your case is truly worth. Contact us not to set up a free consultation.
