Should I Accept The Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer?

Schedule a free consultation with The Matera Law Firm today and let our 25+ years of experience work for you.


We get a question a lot of times about whether or not I should hire a lawyer or just accept what the other insurance carrier is offering. My advice is going to be there’s nothing wrong with having another attorney who’s working on your behalf actually sit down and review your claim and speak to you. Keep in mind that the other carrier and their investigator or adjuster is not working for you. They’re working to try to get a claim resolved and minimize their expense as much as possible

Here at our firm, we’ll make sure that we take the time to sit down with you, go through your injuries, go through the incident, go through liability, and we will know that case inside and out and be able to better advise you as to whether or not an offer is something at that point in time that you should be willing to accept.
