In our experience, insurance companies are only quick to settle before someone lawyers up. That is typically the case because individuals without legal representation are much likelier to accept a lowball settlement or to resolve the case too soon. There are plenty of horror stories where non-represented people accept low-ball settlements only to find out weeks later that a major surgery is required. But claimants only get one bite at the apple. And after a release is signed, they’ve lost their ability to pursue just compensation—even though their medical bills far exceed what the insurer paid. Adequate representation can help avoid these common landmines and typically pays for itself due to the attorneys’ negotiating skills and leverage.
