I was Offered a Lowball Settlement From the Insurance Company: What Now?
The process of making a claim with an insurance company should not cause many headaches. You have been hurt due to the negligence of their client. So why are you being low-balled?
Even though insurance companies claim to help people, they tend to be far more concerned with making money. In most cases, they will make a low offer hoping that you will not ask too many questions and accept it.
It's Crucial to Negotiate
If you feel confident that the settlement offered to you is too low, or you know that it will not cover all the involved expenses of your wreck, tell them no.
You are not obligated to accept an offer from a car insurance company's settlement, especially not the first one. Insurance companies will do whatever they can to make sure they pay you the least amount of money possible. You will be strongly encouraged to accept the first offer, and they will work carefully to try and convince you that this process is not a negotiation, but it is. Insurance companies will not tell you this during the process, but it is absolutely okay to ask for more money.
Calculate the Expenses
Do some work yourself to calculate precisely how much everything is going to cost to repair, and in worst cases, how much your medical bills will amount to. When you provide the insurance company with adequate and credible evidence for the costs surrounding your collision, it gives them very little wiggle room to be able to try to counter anything less.
