What should I do if the insurance company offers me a check right away?
If the insurance company offers you a check right away to settle your case, you should be extremely cautious about accepting that. Oftentimes, insurance companies in Florida will try to settle the case very quickly by offering a small amount of money and unfortunately many clients will do that without consulting with an attorney. But oftentimes the insurance companies only offering you all small amount to see if you’ll settle your case for much less than the full extent of the value of the case.
Because the truth is shortly after the collision you, and even I as the attorney, do not know the full amount of your case, and that will only be determined once she received all of your treatment. So it’s never a good idea to accept a check right away from an insurance company after collision.
