Frederick Accident Attorney Warns Against Settling Too Quickly
The medical bills following a serious Maryland truck accident can be astronomical. As you look at your stack of bills, it can be easy to start fretting about how you will pay them and rush into a settlement to get whatever money you can to pay off your current bills quickly.
However, settling quickly is not always the best strategy. This is your chance to make sure that the person responsible for your injuries — not you — pays for those extensive medical bills. You may not yet know the extent of your injuries, and it’s important that you don’t agree to a settlement amount until you know it’s enough.
You should know that the truck driver’s insurance adjusters are likely to pressure you into settling quickly. This is a common tactic they use to lower their total costs. Their first offer is often a lowball estimate of what your Maryland truck accident injuries are truly worth.
This is why it’s especially important that you don’t settle quickly, as you are likely to end up with minimum compensation. You have the right to hold out until you can be assured that the settlement amount will cover ALL your medical expenses, both current and future.
