Avoid Insurance Settlement Mills in Florida
When it comes to filing an insurance claim for an accidental injury, many people do not know where to begin. Do you file a claim with your own PIP insurance? Can you file a claim against a business or a homeowner? It always helps to have a knowledgeable personal injury attorney handling your claim, but be careful when you are choosing the right attorney.
Many law firms throughout Florida claim they will get you an insurance settlement fast so you can move on with your life.This may sound attractive, especially if you have medical bills piling up and are missing work. However, in many cases, these firms are what we call“settlement mills,” and they often do not get you the results you deserve.
An insurance settlement mill favors quantity over quality. They take a large number of cases, which they aim to settle and close as soon as possible. They often push clients to accept initial offers from insurance companies, even though these offers are generally far lower than what the client needs to cover their losses. They take a smaller percentage from a high volume of cases, always trying to turn them over as fast as possible. Often. A lawyer may never handle the case, and it will instead be in the hands of an assistant or paralegal.On the other hand, when you call a personal injury law firm that is not a settlement mill, they should be committed to getting you the full amount you deserve for your settlement, no matter how many rounds of negotiation it takes. Getting a settlement fast often means that you are losing important compensation.
