How Do I Know if the Insurance Company Is Offering a Fair Settlement?

In the wake of a serious accident, you may hope your insurance company will cover your losses. You’re struggling to recover physically, and you may not have the financial safety net to cover your financial losses. Worse, you may be unable to work to support yourself and your family. 

But how do you know if the insurance company is offering a fair settlement? It’s not always easy, but it’s possible with the help of a lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg. We can help you calculate your claim and get compensated for what you’re owed in Milwaukee, not just what the insurance company is willing to pay. 

Calculate Your Damages

When you’re seeking compensation, it’s tough to determine what your settlement is worth without first adding up the costs and losses you’ve suffered because of your accident. These losses, also called damages, should all be included in your settlement offer. They should include both financial and non-financial losses.

But insurance companies often put their investors over accident victims. Because of this, you may have a hard time getting a fair settlement offer. The insurance adjuster may make a low settlement offer, or they may refuse to settle at all. Reach out to a lawyer about calculating your settlement’s value before you accept the insurance company’s offer. 

Demand the Settlement You’re Due

If you determine your settlement offer is low, you have an opportunity to seek compensation. You don’t have to accept that low settlement offer without fighting for more. However, you may need a Milwaukee injury lawyer’s help to do so. 

Wisconsin injury victims can write a demand letter to the insurance company, demanding further compensation for brain injuries, broken bones, burn injuries, and other problems that could have long-term or indirect impacts on their lives. 

If the insurance company still refuses to settle with you, you may need a lawyer on your side. They have the tools you need to show the insurance company what your claim is worth and to seek that amount in the courtroom.
