Beware of taking the insurance company’s first offer. They may try to lowball you and see if you’ll accept a small, fast settlement that ends your claim and prevents you from taking further action. Accepting a settlement without negotiation is almost always a bad deal for a severely injured victim!
It’s your right to consider your options and seek a free consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney. It’s common to see the insurance company’s offer go steadily upward as soon as they realize you have legal representation and are presenting strong evidence of your need for high-dollar compensation.
