Settling with the insurance company too quickly. When people are involved in a road accident or other form of personal injury in South Florida, insurance companies sometimes sends an unsolicited settlement check to the injured party without an explanatory letter. This check typically states that it is to be used for any and all bodily injury claims. This tempts the injured party to accept the check without considering all the future expenses that may come about (including physical therapy, medications, surgeries and more), thus concluding their personal injury claim too early and forfeiting their opportunity to get the recoveries they deserve. When they later realize that their injuries are more severe than they originally thought, they are then unable to sue because they have already accepted the check. If this has happened to you, call our experienced car accident lawyers at The Law Firm of Cohen & Cohen, P.A. We’ll work toward having this early settlement set aside as fraudulent so you can bring a lawsuit and get the full resolution you deserve.
