Offered Settlement In Truck Accident - Should Be Accepted

Q: I was involved in a Florida truck accident and was offered a settlement from their insurance company. Should I accept the settlement?

A: When you are involved in a Florida truck accident, the trucker’s insurance company will be eager to offer you a quick settlement. This is because, many times, your injuries have not yet appeared or worsened. If you accept the insurance company’s settlement agreement, you may be signing away your rights to proper coverage for your current and future medical expenses. Before you sign anything, you should seek counsel from a West Palm Beach truck accident attorney. You should also undergo a full doctor’s examination. Your doctor can help you to better understand the extent of your injuries and can give you an idea of what type of medical treatment you may require in the future.
