The insurance company is offering me a settlement, and I really need the money. Should I take it?

Tell the company you will get back to them, and immediately contact The Law Offices of Scott C. Gottlieb & Associates, LLP. Shortly after an accident, an insurance company may quickly offer a small amount of money in return for your signing a document stating that you will not sue and agree to release the at-fault party from liability.

Insurance companies often try to discourage car accident victims from hiring a lawyer so they can pay less to settle the claim. Never take an insurance check without first consulting an attorney.
