How to settle an Arkansas motorcycle accident case? You may be asking yourself, should I accept the offer an insurance company adjuster made me to settle my accident or talk to a lawyer? Here something to think about.
I recently settled a motorcycle accident case that fortunately was relatively minor as far as motorcycle accidents go. My client was uninsured. The client came to me with an offer in hand from the nice adjuster who wanted to “make things right”. The nice insurance adjuster failed to tell the client that the hospital where she was treated had filed a lien with the insurance company for about $200 less than the amount the were being offered.
Ultimately, I was able to negotiate a good settlement in which the client’s outstanding medical bills were paid and significant money went into her pocket for he injuries due to the negligence of the driver the insurance company represented.
If my client had accepted the insurance company’s generous offer to “make things right” right out of the gate, she would have received $200 after the hospital lien was paid directly by the insurance company to the hospital.
