What if the Insurance Company Offers Me Money Immediately After My Accident?

Auto Accident Attorney Memphis

Following an auto accident, where you were not at fault, it is quite common for an insurance adjuster to offer payment for your property damage and something extra for your inconvenience and pain and suffering. We understand that the financial considerations are often so overwhelming that the prospect of an immediate cash settlement from your insurance company is quite appealing.

However, after your accident it’s important to remember that the insurance company isn’t looking out for your best interests. Insurance companies will often attempt to use the physical and financial toll of your accident as leverage to get you to accept a settlement that is less than you deserve. They will also have you sign a full release which would preclude you from ever bringing up the claim again, even if you begin to feel pain related to the accident days or weeks after the accident or your pain does not subside with simple rest. 

Again, once you sign the insurance companies release, you will not be able to get anything further from them, whether it be future medical payment costs or lost wages. Therefore, it is extremely important to contact an attorney immediately after your accident. Whether you choose to hire an attorney or not is up to you, but getting the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney can be of great help.
