        Is the insurance company asking you to settle a claim? Learn if you should be accepting the first nursing home negligence settlement offer.


        Question:

        Should we take the insurance companies initial offer in a nursing home negligence claim?

        Answer:

        We were talking to somebody recently who had a nursing home negligence case. They had received a settlement offer from the insurance company. They asked a good question, which is should they take that initial offer from the insurance company. It is never a good idea to take an insurance company’s initial settlement offer. First, oftentimes, the insurance carrier may offer a settlement early on in order to close the case quickly and avoid any more exposure on the case. They do that oftentimes before all the evidence is even gathered and you have had an opportunity to determine the full extent of the damages in the case.

        Even if you are aware of all of the evidence, and the injuries are clear, and you think you are ready to settle the case, it’s still not a good idea to accept the insurance carrier’s initial settlement offer. Most of the time, the insurance carrier is willing to pay more than their first offer. It will require some back and forth and some negotiations in order to get the insurance company to pay the fair amount of your damages. If you have any questions about accepting a settlement offer on your nursing home negligence case, just give us a call. We’d be happy to talk through that with you.
