Out of Court Personal Injury Settlement: Here’s What You Need to Know

Posted on

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, you’ll likely go through the at-fault party’s insurance provider to obtain the compensation you need to recover. The vast majority of these claims are settled out of court, and having an experienced Greenville personal injury attorney in your corner is always well advised.

Your Personal Injury Settlement

Settling with the insurance company is critical to your recovery, but it is a complicated process – and you should keep all of the following in mind:


  • The insurance company is motivated by profits and not by your best interests.
  • You are not required to provide the insurance company with a formal statement about the accident, and it is a good idea to avoid doing so (Insurance companies are notorious for twisting claimants’ words).
  • The insurance company may engage in questionable practices to help keep your settlement low, including denying your claim outright; offering you an early, lowball settlement offer; or attempting to shift blame for the accident toward you.


The best way to deal with the insurance company and effect your most beneficial case resolution is by working closely with an experienced personal injury attorney.
