Before you accept the first settlement, assess your injuries to see how much financial compensation you believe covers medical expenses and other related costs.
When determining if the first offer for a wrongful death lawsuit settlement is good, there are multiple factors to take into account.
Before you make any decision, try to confirm how long you have to accept the settlement offer. Then, assess your injuries and determine how much financial compensation you think is appropriate for covering medical expenses and other related costs.
Moreover, factor in the strength of your wrongful death case when deciding whether or not to accept an insurance company's initial offer. If you are positive that you actually have wrongful death damages, consider the proof you need to support your lawsuit.
If you are confident that what you have will be enough, this may give more leverage during negotiations with the insurance company and make it more willing to increase its offer. Also, it is best to research common settlement amounts for similar cases to get a better idea of what may be considered reasonable in terms of compensation offered by insurers.
A reputable and experienced Florida wrongful death lawyer can help you respond to settlement offers and let you know if the insurance company has made a good offer.
