I can’t get the insurance company to make an offer that will cover the full cost of my accident injuries. Is it time to sue?

If, despite your best efforts, you are simply unable to reach a fair resolution with the other driver’s insurance company after an accident, then litigation might be the only option you have for potentially recovering the damages you truly deserve. However, don’t be too quick to make a decision. There may be a number of factors that deserve attention before you take action.

If you think litigation may be on the horizon, here are four questions you should ask yourself before you decide:

  • Have I exhausted my other options? Even if the initial offer from the insurance company is unsatisfactory, you and your attorney may still be able to negotiate a better settlement. 
  • Are my expectations of the outcome actually realistic? Sometimes accident victims are unable to reach a satisfactory settlement because their expectations don’t match the reality of their legal situation.
  • Do I have a strong case for my claims of injury? If you don’t have the documentation and evidence you need to support your claims, an accident injury lawsuit is unlikely to help your situation.
  • Do I have the resources and support I need for a successful personal injury lawsuit? Expert witnesses, access to documents, and a thorough knowledge of the law and the claims process could all be a factor in your lawsuit against the insurance company, and legal support can be key to your success.
