Here's the scenario: You get into a Los Angeles car accident that was not your fault (or maybe it was partially your fault but the other car too) and you are now trying to deal with insurance and get an extremely low offer but feel pressured to take it.

An all too common scenario that you should not fall victim to. Give the lawyers at Walch Law a call before you accept any offer. Here's why you should never accept the first Los Angeles car accident insurance offer you get:

  • Working with an attorney pays off: For starters, working with an attorney can help get you significantly more money. At Walch Law, we have helped thousands of clients get way more than their initial offer because we know all the tricks insurance companies try to play and beat them! Our goal as your Los Angeles car accident attorney is to maximize your recovery as quickly as possible. We are so committed to getting you paid that we take all of our cases on a contingency fee basis meaning we don't get paid until we get you paid. 
  • It's less money than you need: Figuring out the full extent of your injuries and damage does take some time and thought from your physicians and others. For this very important reason, you do not want to take an amount that does not take into account how much you actually need to not have your accident negatively impact you. In the long run, waiting a little longer for your attorney to work with you and your medical team will always pay off. On another note, if the Los Angeles car accident was partially your fault, the insurance company will try to pin more fault on you than it likely was in an effort to further reduce their financial responsibility.
  • They are trying to lowball you: Insurance companies are not bad people but they are a business trying to make and save money when and where they can. When they send you an initial offer they are trying to quickly get you paid and be done with your case on their end. They are acting only off the information they have and likely have no idea about things like your injuries, missed work, etc. They number is also much lower than they are actually willing to pay.
  • No second chances: If you take their money, you do not have a chance to go back and try again. Cashing their check is also reliving them of any further financial responsibility as it relates to your Los Angeles car accident. Meeting with Walch Law is free so take a moment and set up your consultation before taking the money. If we think it is a good offer (which has never happened) we will tell you.

Getting into a Los Angeles car accident can be a stressful and confusing time that is also extremely expensive. For all those reasons and more we know how tempting it is to take the money offered by the insurance company but please take a moment to think about all the things mentioned about and how much more you and your family can benefit from a little patience and a lot more money. At Walch Law, we are here to help with your Los Angeles car accident. Whether you have received a low offer or no offer at all, get in touch with us today to discuss your case further...we promise you won't regret it.
