The at fault driver’s insurance company has already made me a settlement offer, why should I contact an attorney?
Often times the at fault driver’s insurance company will make an offer shortly after the accident to close the file quickly. The insurance company will not send a settlement check until you sign a release of all known and unknown claims against the at fault driver. Once the release is signed, your claim is settled for a specific amount and it is very difficult, if not impossible, to re-open the claim if you find out your injuries were worse than originally thought. Call the Law Offices of Frank M. Nunes to discuss whether the insurance company’s offer is fair, reasonable and good idea to accept.
