The first trick that most insurance companies employ against car accident victims is to give a low-ball offer to quickly settle for the damage portion of your auto accident claim. You should never fall into this trap. Bear in mind that they use this strategy in order to get rid of your claim in the shortest possible time. Insurance companies know that you are probably vulnerable and in need of money immediately after an accident. The insurance companies know that there is a high probability that you will accept the offer no matter how unfair the amount may appear to be.
You also need not accept the “final” offer from an insurance company if you feel that you are still not compensated enough. These final offers are not always the final offers because you may still be able to negotiate them. You may want to come up with your own number or hire an attorney.
Dealing with an insurance company can be a long and painful process. They may not have your best interests in mind, they are in the business to make a profit, so it is often your responsibility to look out for your own best interests. The key is to never let insurance companies intimidate you, and to consider hiring a RI personal injury lawyer to deal with them. An experienced lawyer in Rhode Island knows how to protect your rights from the insurance companies. RI personal injury attorneys have teams that will make sure that you get what you are entitled to. Contact an attorney and get the fair compensation that you deserve.
