Although you may want to accept the first settlement offer from the insurance company, keep in mind that the first settlement offer rarely represents the maximum compensation the insurance company can offer. Nor does that settlement usually represent full and fair compensation for your and your family’s losses. Before accepting any settlement offer, tell the insurance company that you must first consult with an attorney.

An experienced wrongful death attorney can review the offer and advise you as to whether it represents full and fair compensation for your family’s loss. An attorney can communicate with the insurance company on your family’s behalf to potentially secure the full financial recovery and justice that your family deserves.
