Should I Settle My Case?
Insurance companies often offer to settle personal injury claims. Unfortunately, they will do so for the lowest amount possible. Insurance companies will not pay you full and fair compensation until they are forced to by the threat of a trial.
If an insurance company has offered to settle your personal injury case, call the Law Offices of L. T. Baker, P.A. We will review the settlement offer at no cost and with no obligation. Call 866-433-1991 to talk to an attorney.
Accepting a settlement that is less than you need and deserve is the most serious mistake that you can make. You only have one opportunity to pursue compensation in a personal injury case. Once you accept a settlement and sign a release, your case is over. You won’t be able to go back and request more money if your needs turn out to be greater than you first thought.
Why We Are Not A Settlement Law Firm
Many personal injury law firms will write up a demand package and send it to the insurance company as the first step of negotiating a settlement. Our experience has taught us that it is the equivalent of putting out a beggar’s cup.
If your lawyer is only seeking a settlement from day one of your case, the insurance company won’t make you a fair offer. The only way to receive full and fair compensation is to be prepared to go the distance. We are trial lawyers, not settlement lawyers. Once we have completed our investigation and are prepared for trial, we will send the insurance company a reserve package so they know the amount of damages they are facing. If the insurance company wants to pay you full and fair compensation before we go to trial, we will give them the opportunity to do so.

Attorney Baker and his team worked hard on my case after I was in a car accident and I was very pleased with the outcome. I tried to handle everything myself, but I just didn’t have the know-how to deal with insurance companies. Thank you Attorney Baker! ROCHELLE
