        Question:

        Should We Accept the Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer for My Child’s Injury?

        Answer:

        We’ve had clients do incredibly smart things. We had a client the other day who came in for a consultation because their child had been injured at daycare, and the insurance company came back and offered her a check to resolve the case immediately. She felt that was a little bit strange, came to us, and, sure enough, she was right. When insurance companies do that, they are trying to resolve the claim for the least amount of money possible. They recognize that they’re at fault or that they may have some exposure, and rather than waiting until your child is done with the treatment, waiting until we know exactly what your child’s injuries are, they want to close out the case.

        When you do this, you’re shortchanging your child. Initially it’s because your child, usually at that stage, has not finished all their treatment, which means we don’t know what the damages or what the injuries actually are. If you accept an amount now, that amount may be completely inappropriate for the type of injuries that your child sustained. It’s very important that you consult with an attorney and that you allow the process to go forward, as tempting as it can be to take that offer. An attorney can evaluate the case appropriately and tell you based on these injuries, based on how long they’ve treated, based on what they have pending in the future, what they think the case is worth.

        Sure enough, our client – we were already well above the initial offer that the insurance company made – was going to recover a lot more than if she would have just taken the insurance company’s initial offer. If you have any questions or an insurance company has made an offer to you, feel free to give us a call for a free consultation. We’d be happy to discuss the case with you, even if it’s just to tell you whether or not that offer is fair. It’s a completely free consultation, so feel free to give us a call.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
