Most times, the insurance company’s settlement offer is their first offer. It is important to understand that insurance companies will do their own independent evaluations of your claim, and decide what they think they should pay—not necessarily what is fair.
This means that they might not consider some of your medical treatment to be related to the accident, they might not consider all your lost wages and will certainly discount the effect on your life.
Insurance companies will generally use whatever tricks and calculations they can to pay you as little as possible. Then, they will try to convince you to accept a settlement for less than what you are entitled.
This is why it is so important that you hire an experienced Phoenix personal injury lawyer to help you through your case.
After an accident, your main focus should be getting the medical treatment you need to recover from the accident and dealing with your property damage, lost wages and other expenses.
