How Can I Ensure My Rights Are Protected After An Injury In Florida?
Keep in mind that it is difficult to know how serious an injury is initially. Doctors might say it will improve in a few weeks only to learn later on that there were complications involved. That is why we recommend that you do two things to ensure your rights are protected:
Do not sign any paperwork or take money. We speak to individuals who have taken the money that the insurance company first offered. They later realized that they would need to have more treatment, which cost a lot more money than the insurance check covered. They had signed their right away to renegotiate. The reason why insurance companies offer money right away is due to the fact that they want to settle your claim as cheaply as possible, by paying you the lowest amount of money possible to you.
