What if the insurance company offers me a check or payment?
This is incredibly important. The insurance company’s goal is to get you to accept the lowest possible amount (if any). And they are professionals. This is what they do for a living.
You should not accept any form of payment without reviewing it with your own professional.
A certain company(that claims to have you in good hands…) has been offering direct bank account deposits. This sounds great on the surface: some quick money to help start paying for your recovery bills.
But they consider that payment as completing their responsibility, and your acceptance of it as closing your case. And that number is almost always a fraction of the value you are owed.
Don’t accept any kind of check, deposit, or payment without having your case review by a personal injury attorney.
