Q
I was in a car accident. The insurance company for the other driver already offered me a settlement for my hip pain. What should I know before I accept it?

A

Insurance companies will try to call you right away following a Roswell auto accident to present you with an offer that may sound large; however, in reality, it might not be enough to even cover the damages to your vehicle plus your medical bills. Before you accept any offer from an insurance company, you need to have a good understanding of the extent of your injuries and what your claim may be worth.

Some minor claims may be handled on your own; however, if you suffered any type of serious injury, such as hip pain after a Roswell car accident, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of legal counsel. It is not recommended to pursue your own settlement if you are injured and if you don’t know what a case like yours is worth.

If you are going to pursue trying to reach a settlement with the insurance company on your own, at least talk with a personal injury lawyer first to get an idea of what your case may be worth. Additionally, be aware of the tactics that insurers often use to try to get you to settle for a low amount. They may bully you, pressure you, minimize your injuries, and state that you already had a previous condition that could have contributed to your pain and injuries.
