IS THE INSURANCE COMPANY’S OFFER FAIR AND REASONABLE?
A: Securing a fair settlement offer is not magic. You don’t get fair compensation because of whom you know. Fair compensation is not the product of intimidation, “smooth talking,” or “bulldogging.” It is the result of hard work, knowledge, experience, organization, and determination. It is both an art and a science. It is about using the right combination of sticks and carrots at the right times. The objective in every injury case is to demonstrate to the insurance company that
1. You can pay us now, or
2. You can pay us later.
Your lawyer must show the insurance adjuster, without arrogance or ego, that the company is going to have to pay this claim. He must show that the way that the adjuster can best do her job and save money for her company is by paying now instead of paying lawyers to defend the case and then end up paying you later.
