Did You Know You CAN’T Sue for More Compensation After Accepting a Settlement?
When people are hurt in crashes, one of their first worries is how it will affect their finances. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck or must be very careful with their budgeting and expenses. So knowing that you’ve got vehicle repair costs, hospital bills, and a prolonged period away from work can leave you feeling stressed out and even scared for your family’s future.
Insurance companies know that many victims are in financial crisis mode, and they take advantage of this by offering them settlements just days or weeks after their accidents. These settlements may even appear to be for impressively large amounts of money, and victims may feel that at least their money troubles will be taken care of.
However, victims don’t always realize how expensive crashes can be in the months and years to come. They don’t anticipate that they will need continuing medical treatment and that they may never recover enough to go back to work. But when they accept the insurance companies’ settlement offers, they’re forever locked out of pursuing more compensation.
This overlooked fact is why it’s so important to get full compensation upfront AND to have an experienced law firm on your side that knows how much you’re owed and will demand every penny.
