When Is a Settlement Fair after a Car Accident in Palm Beach County, Broward County, and Across South Florida?

After you’ve been injured or suffered property damage in a car accident and have filed a claim for compensation with the insurance company, you may be pleasantly surprised to hear back that the insurer has agreed to pay you compensation for the accident. Or you may hear from an insurance adjuster out of the blue offering to pay you a settlement right now to resolve any potential claims you may have. Whatever the circumstances of the insurance company’s settlement offer, you may not be sure whether the amount of money the insurer has offered you represents a fair or good amount.

Factors That Affect the Value of a Settlement

If you’ve suffered serious injuries or property damage after a car accident in South Florida, you may be entitled to pursue an insurance claim against the at-fault driver, or against uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage you may have available to you. While some car accident claims do end up going to trial, the vast majority end in a settlement. Although most car accident settlements do not reach the maximum level of compensation that a jury might award at trial, there are many factors that affect the value of a settlement reached between an injured party and the at-fault party or an insurer, including:

In the end, the size of a settlement will be a balance between the extent of your losses, the amount of money available to compensate you, the time and monetary expense of going to trial, and the relative risk to each party of a more favorable or unfavorable outcome at trial

Frequently Asked Questions about What Is a Good Settlement Offer for a Car Accident in South Florida?

FAQ: Will I get a good settlement in the first offer from the insurance company?

It is unlikely that the initial offer of compensation you receive from the insurance company will provide you with full compensation for your injuries and losses from an accident. You may not yet fully understand the extent of your injuries or the losses you will incur as a result when you receive an initial offer from the insurance company. In addition, many insurance companies often try a lowball settlement offer with the initial offer, hoping that an injured party will accept the settlement and release the insurance company from further liability.

FAQ: The insurance company wants me to give a statement before making a settlement offer. Should I talk to the adjuster?

It is advisable that you avoid giving a written or oral statement to an insurance adjuster, especially if you have not yet had the opportunity to speak to a car accident lawyer. Insurance companies often want to take statements from injured parties to try to use something in the statement against the party when they file a claim for compensation.
