If the other party’s insurance company is willing to try and settle with you, it is advantageous to at least try to negotiate with them. In many cases you can get just as much money settling a case as you can when actually going to court, the difference is that when you go to court, there is a chance that you can lose. The other party is usually willing to pay up to a certain point to try to avoid going to court, and we try to take advantage of this whenever we can. When we have to take a case to court, it can take a lot longer for the process to complete and get you your money. If we can settle your case, you get compensation quite quickly.
