Slip and Fall Settlement Offers
Were you injured in a slip and fall and the insurance company is offering you a settlement? Don’t get low-balled by the insurance company without speaking to an experienced New York slip and fall lawyer first. Watch this video to find out what you need to know about slip and fall settlement offers.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a slip and fall case in New York, it usually never makes any sense to take the first offer from the insurance carrier. The insurance carrier always starts low; they never start with their best offer, and they never start with the offer that really pays for the injuries that you sustained. Your attorney has experience in negotiating with insurance companies. This is a long process. It doesn’t start immediately; it doesn’t end immediately. The first offer is usually not the offer that fully reimburses you for the damages that you sustained.
I would say a first offer is just an opening bid; it’s just a first comment. It has nothing to do with the final offer; it has nothing to do with how much your case is worth. It has nothing to do with how much money you’re going to get, and you must take your time and do the proper amount of work. You can push your case hard in court, keep on sending those medical specials to the carrier, keep on proving what injuries you have and how much your case is worth, so in the end they will pay you the proper amount.
