Will the Insurance Company Offer Me a Settlement for My Personal Injury Claim?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston personal injury attorneys understand that when Texas residents experience an accident due to negligence, such as a car accident or slip and fall incident, the insurance company’s primary strategy is to settle out of court.

However, insurance representatives will not tell you that.

In certain situations, the insurance company might challenge or deny responsibility for the accident, even when the evidence clearly points to the policyholder’s fault. This can make the claims process more complex, necessitating further evidence collection and negotiation to establish liability.

In others, the insurance company may intentionally delay the claims process by requesting extensive documentation, conducting lengthy investigations, or repeatedly asking for additional information. This tactic frustrates injury victims and pressures them into accepting a lower settlement offer.

The problem is that the insurance company’s low settlement offer may not adequately compensate you for your complete injuries and damages. So, the question isn’t whether they will offer you a settlement; it is, will they offer you an adequate settlement? We have answers.

Settlement fMy Personal Injury Claim

Why is the Insurance Company Offering Me Such a Low Settlement Amount for My Injuries?

Once the insurance company has assessed liability and damages, it may offer you a settlement that seems acceptable until you do the math. This offer is typically an initial negotiation and may not only be lower than what you believe your claim is worth but not enough to cover your expenses.

You can accept or reject the settlement offer. If you take it, you’ll typically sign a release form, and the insurance company will issue payment. If you reject the offer, negotiations may continue, or you may pursue other avenues.

It is important to remember that insurance companies often aim to settle claims for the least amount possible to limit their financial obligations. Therefore, it is essential to understand the true value of your claim and consider seeking guidance from a Houston personal injury attorney. We can represent your interests, guide you through the negotiation process, and ensure you receive a fair settlement.

Our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Houston have a deep understanding of Texas personal injury laws, including statutes of limitations, liability rules, and damages calculations.

Even if you have already tried to pursue your personal injury claim independently, we can evaluate your case’s strengths during a free consultation. We will assess liability and damages by conducting a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your accident to gather evidence supporting your claim. This may include obtaining police reports, witness statements, medical records, and other relevant documentation.

Our skilled negotiators will engage with insurance companies on your behalf to seek a fair settlement, advocate for your rights, and push for maximum compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
