Don't Be in a Hurry to Settle a Claim in Meridian Mississippi | Richard Schwartz If you have been injured, then the at-fault party or an insurance company may have offered a proposal to settle the claim. This involves a contract that ultimately releases the responsible party from liability. However, you should not rush to settle a claim. If you agree to settle a claim too early, then you may miss out on additional compensation. A settlement should reimburse all of your losses, but these are often difficult to quantify without the help of an injury lawyer. If the incident happened in Mississippi, then a Meridian personal-injury attorney from Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. may be able to help. Call us today at (601) 869-0696 to schedule a consultation. The moment you settle a claim, you have to sign a release, which prevents you from pursuing additional damages. This can prove costly if you sign the release and uncover additional injuries or if your health-care costs become unexpectedly high. As a rule of thumb, if you have any pain, then you are not ready to settle your case. Until you have fully recovered, it is impossible to calculate the total damages, and if you need ongoing medical support, then accepting a low settlement can lead you toward insurmountable debt. A Meridian personal-injury lawyer from Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. can evaluate your case and quantify the damages. Call (601) 869-0696 today to schedule a free initial consultation.
