You know all too well that you can’t control what other people do. If you couldn’t stop the accident, how will you control the settlement that the insurance company is willing to provide to your loved one’s estate?

Three Ways to Influence a Fair Settlement

The truth is that you can’t control what the insurance company proposes as a fair settlement. You can’t make them offer you what you believe to be fair compensation for cutting your loved one’s life short and causing you and your family so much pain. However, there are things that you can do to influence your fair recovery. Specifically, you can:

  • Stop talking to the insurance adjuster directly. The insurance adjuster is not looking out for your best interests. He may later use what you say against you and try to lower your settlement.
  • Know what your case is worth. In order to get a fair settlement, you need to know what your case is worth. You need to know what dollar amount you should expect to recover for your loved one’s medical expenses and funeral expenses, and for the lost income, out-of-pocket costs, and pain and suffering endured by your family.
  • Call a wrongful death lawyer for help. An attorney can talk to the insurance adjuster for you, help you understand what your case may be worth, and fight hard for your just recovery.

There is no amount of money that will ever undo what someone else’s deliberate or negligent actions have done. However, that does not mean that compensation is impossible or not worth pursuing.
