Boat Accident Insurance Investigation

3 Boat Accident TipsAs you navigate through your boating accident claim, one of the things that’s probably going to happen at some point is an insurance company is going to make you an offer. You’re probably going to ask yourself if you should accept or decline their offer. In almost all circumstances, it’s not advisable to accept the insurance company’s first offer. The reason behind this is that an insurance company is trying to pay you as little as possible, so they’re never going to put their best foot forward with their initial offer.

The negotiation process is like building a house. An insurance company is going to build the floor with their initial offer. That’s the low point, and that’s something that you should probably never accept. Your attorney is going to create the ceiling. They’re going to make an inflated offer to the insurance company that they’re probably never going to accept. The way the negotiation process works is that you’re probably going to meet somewhere in the middle. You want an attorney who’s going to get you a settlement offer that’s closer towards the ceiling than it is to the floor.

Our office can absolutely do that. We can help you get you the compensation that you deserve. Please reach out to us as soon as possible so that we can help you with your boating accident claim.

Choosing a Boat Accident Attorney

One of the most important questions that you need to ask if you are involved in a boat accident is, “How can I pick the best attorney for me?” That’s a great question. It’s one that you should probably put a lot of though into. When picking an attorney, you want to think about a number of different factors.

The most important factor is probably picking the person you are most comfortable with and who you can trust. You’ve been injured once; you don’t want to be injured twice by picking someone who is not going to have your best interests at heart. Another thing that you need to consider is whether the attorney has experience handling boat accident cases just like yours. Our office has extensive experience handling matters like yours. We would love to see what we can do to help you, so feel free to give us a call right away.

Boat Accident Case Timeline

A common question that we get is how long it will take to finalize a boating accident injury claim. It’s not only a common question, but it’s also a very good question. It is also difficult to answer because every case is different.

When determining how long it’s going to take to resolve your boat accident case, one of the first things that you need to think about is how long it is going to take for you to recover from your injuries. Before submitting a claim, you want to make sure that you have finished all of your treatment or that you have reached what’s called “maximum medical improvement.” An insurance company is only going to pay you once, so you want to make sure that you get the amount you are entitled to the first time. Feel free to give us a call so that we can see what we can do to help you with your boating accident injuries.
