Sometimes when people are offered a settlement from an insurer, they begin to call law offices to see if the figure offered is fair. Then when one lawyer tells them it isn’t fair and that they can get more money, their eyes go green and they proceed with litigation.
However, if the lawyer hasn’t begun to work on your case yet, he or she can’t predict what amount of money you will end up with by taking the case to court. Be weary of anyone who says he or she can.
Remember, the lawyer who quotes the highest settlement isn’t necessarily the lawyer who can get you the most money. Higher settlements are won through developing a case and working in court, not through speculating on dollar amounts.
