If you have been hurt in a California car accident, you will probably receive a call from an insurance adjuster immediately following the crash. The adjuster will want to speak with you and will take a recorded statement about the events leading to the crash. If the company decides to accept liability for the crash, they will offer you a settlement. Such initial settlement offers may seem attractive because you want to put the entire ordeal behind you. However, they are not usually in your best interest.
The insurance company wants to maximize its profits. By settling quickly, they get the case off their plate with a small payment. The company makes money and you could be left with future expensive medical treatments and pain.
Once you settle and sign a release, you have no further legal rights with regard to your personal injury claim. It is always wise to consult an experienced Southern California car accident lawyer before signing anything or talking to the insurance company.
