Should I Accept the First Settlement Offer?


Should I accept the insurance company’s first offer after a truck wreck?


If you?re involved in a truck accident, you might get a phone call from the insurance adjuster for the trucking company. Keep in mind, they will want a good deal of information from you. They might not want to give you some of their own information, but they will want information from you, be it a recorded statement or information about your injuries. Before speaking to the insurance company, talk to a lawyer first.

An insurance company might even make you an offer. You should not consider taking any offer from an insurance adjuster until you first talk to a lawyer. They could be lowballing you. After all, part of their job is to delay claims and underpay them as much as reasonably possible. You need to make sure you understand the severity of your injuries before you are considering taking any offer whatsoever.
