Should I Accept a Settlement After a Car Wreck in Georgia?
There are a lot of difficulties that come with being injured in a car wreck. Not only do you have aches, pains, and possibly life-changing injuries to deal with, you also have to worry about the financial implications of treating your injuries and missing work.
It might seem like the easy option to just accept the first settlement offer that comes your way, but by doing this you risk being severely underpaid.
Avoid the First Offer
Imagine right after your wreck, receiving a call. The attorney on the phone tells you that he is willing to give you a check for $2,000 to pay for your suffering and will rush the paperwork to you right away. Once you sign, the money will be deposited into your account tomorrow.
It might sound nice, but this offer is often way under what you deserve. If you sign this paperwork, you give up your right to receive fair compensation later on.
Evaluate Your Personal Injuries
It is important that you estimate how much your injuries are worth before you accept a settlement so that you know what is fair. Some components, such as medical expenses, are easy to calculate, but others such as lost time, pain and suffering, are not. You will need to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer to correctly evaluate your injuries and get the compensation you deserve.
