Bicycle Accident Settlement Offers
Were you or someone you love injured while riding your bike in New York? Don’t get low-balled by the insurance company. Watch this video to learn about bicycle accident settlement offers and why you should speak with an attorney before accepting anything from the insurance company.
Sometimes my clients ask, “Does it make sense to take the insurance carrier’s initial offer when you’re seriously injured in a bicycle accident in New York?” The answer to that is – unless they’re offering their entire policy – no, because it’s only an initial offer. Sometimes if it’s a serious enough injury, and the policy isn’t all that large to cover the full extent of the injury, they will offer their policy immediately to close out the case, but this is rare times. Mostly, they’re initial offer is just a small percentage of the money that you’re due for your case.
Insurance companies like to negotiate. Personal injury lawyers like to negotiate, and we do it well. You need to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who will negotiate on your behalf and take it as far as it has to go to ensure that you get the maximum amount of money for the serious injury you sustained.
