This is a common question. After every accident, the insurance companies will immediately start contacting the parties, witnesses, police officers and hospitals to obtain all records, reports and valuable information to work towards a quick resolution.
Part of that immediate action will undoubtedly involve a call to the parties with a financial offer in exchange for their agreement not to file a lawsuit. Most people think, "Take the money and Run!" This is not always the best decision. An immediate settlement almost always leaves out the possibility of future injuries or aggravation of present injuries, future economic loss, lost wages and any other costs associated with the accident.
That is why it is so important to first speak with a Personal Injury Lawyer to assess your rights and possible damages from the accident prior to speaking with any representative from an insurance company.
