If I don’t accept the insurance company’s settlement offer after my slip and fall accident, will I be able to collect more by going to trial?
There is no guarantee that you will receive an award when presenting your case in front of a judge and jury. However, the Law Offices of David Benenfeld wouldn’t take your case unless we feel you have a valid slip and fall lawsuit that is worth pursuing for more than the insurance company’s settlement offer.
The insurance company has a limit they are willing to spend on settling your case, and they are hoping they can settle it for as little money as possible. It is important to note that settlement offers can always be negotiated. So if the insurance adjuster has presented you with an offer, you can always negotiate their first offer higher. After that, it can take some convincing and a trained lawyer to get your settlement offer raised higher.
