The Insurance Company Offer: What is Fair?
The offer. That’s what a car accident injury claim really comes down to. What is the insurance company willing to pay for your injuries? In our experience, their first offer doesn’t come close to what you’re truly going to need to recover from your injuries. The problem is a lack of information. By the time you get your first offer from the insurance company, you may only have seen one or two medical bills, and they may be estimates.
What about the doctor’s visit you have scheduled for next week? Or the set of X-rays you’ll have to get next month? What about the days, weeks, or months of work you’ll miss over the next year, not to mention your pain and suffering? The simple fact is you don’t know how much your accident is going to cost you when that first offer comes in, so how can they expect you to make a decision on whether or not it’s fair?
The answer is you can’t on your own. You need someone looking out for your best interests just like the insurance company is looking out for their own. At Cofman Townsley, we know how to determine what a car accident is going to cost in the long-run, and we’ll fight for every dollar on your behalf.
