Through the years in representing many people and victims who have been injured in these construction accidents, we know that these cases sometimes take some time. As fast as we are at pushing them – and your attorney will want to move the case forward – these cases often have a lot of value because there’s often a lot of bad injuries. What’s important to keep in mind is there will be offers made throughout a case, and often there is an initial offer. Not always, but it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t always take that first offer. It depends on what is fair.
Often, insurance companies will send out a feeler or will hope that your attorney will want to get it over quickly and not do a lot of work on the case. Maybe you feel that you need the money quickly, so it’s important to really trust your attorney on whether the offer is fair. While it’s not an absolute bar not to take a first offer, it’s something to keep in mind that that’s not always going to be your best offer. You have to weigh the things you’re going through in life, keep in mind what your attorney tells you, what he feels could be appropriate or what he may be able to achieve as a future settlement offer, which may be in much greater excess than the initial offer by the insurance company.
