Question:

Should I accept a settlement offer from an insurance company after a truck accident?

Answer:

I had a client who was involved in a wreck on Whiskey Road in Aiken, South Carolina call me and tell me an insurance company had made them an initial settlement offer. The client asked me if they should take the first settlement offer. If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll share with you what I shared with the client.

Accepting a Settlement Offer After a Truck AccidentI’ve handled many tractor trailer cases in South Carolina during my years of practice, and I’ve never seen an insurance company offer a fair price on their first offer. Insurance companies always offer a lower amount and can come up off that offer. They expect it to be negotiated. I told my client that I could get her more money than she could on her own, that I have experience dealing with the federal rules and regulations for trucking companies. I have experience dealing with experts that specialize in the rules and regulations of trucking companies, and I have experience in preserving evidence of the truck wreck, such as speed, data recorders, braking distances, and video cameras, as well as preserving the driver logbooks to show how many hours they had been working that week.
