        Question:

        Do you recommend taking the insurance companies initial offer?

        Answer:

        Do you ever recommend taking the initial offer from an insurance company that represents a trucking company for a commercial motor vehicle accident in Orlando, Florida? We were just talking with a client about this when we were trying to resolve the case here in Orlando, Florida. They had been in a commercial motor vehicle accident. The trucking company and the insurance representatives reached out to them immediately, and they tried to negotiate with them and essentially tried to settle the case. The answer to that is no. In our experience, unless they’re offering full policy limits – which they rarely do – then it is never a good idea to accept the initial offer from the insurance company. There are many reasons to that.

        One, even if they do offer the insurance limits, there could be other sources of liability. There could be other insurance sources. If you resolve your claim, you could be signing away your rights to getting that other compensation. Also, if it’s a larger insurance policy and they have not tendered their policy limits, accepting the lesser amount could bar you in the future from getting anymore for your claim. Usually, for the most part, at the beginning of a claim, if an insurance company or the attorney offers you an amount to settle the case, it’s never a good idea to accept that, only in the rarest of circumstances where you do have them offering you the policy limits and there’s no other way to get any other compensation in the case.

        You really need to be careful of that. If any time you’re in a commercial motor vehicle accident here in Orlando, Florida, make sure you contact an attorney. Sometimes, the insurance representatives or an attorney for the company will reach out to you that same day or the day after the accident, and you may not have an attorney by then. We would, again, always recommend, one, getting an attorney that’s knowledgeable in these types of cases and, two, don’t accept any initial offer without first consulting your attorney in these types of cases. Many times, these insurance companies are obviously trying to protect their claim, they’re trying to protect their clients, and they’re not out there to help you.

        If you have any other questions about commercial trucking cases and whether or not you should accept the initial offer from an insurance company, don’t hesitate to contact our firm.

        “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
