After negotiating a car accident insurance claim, you will need to make a decision as to whether or not you should accept the settlement being offered. For help with your case, contact Atlanta personal injury legal services.
Deciding to Accept or Reject a Car Accident Settlement
Knowing whether you should accept or reject a settlement may depend on a few factors. One is if the figure is close to what you are seeking. It helps to determine ahead of time a settlement range that includes the very lowest amount you are willing to accept.
A second factor to consider is if it will be worth the time and money to take your case to court if you reject the offer. Keep in mind that you could end up with even less or with nothing, should your case go to court. But rejecting an offer doesn’t always mean that a case will head to court; another offer may be made.
When considering if a settlement should be accepted or rejected, seek legal advice. An attorney can provide helpful tips on negotiating a car accident insurance claim and assist with the process.
