Answer: Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company after my bicycle accident?
After a bicycle accident in Texas, the insurance companies oftentimes call and start offering a check. A lot of times they use language like “Let us pay for your medical bills,” “We’re very sorry you’re going through this,” “Let us give you $500 for your trouble.”
The reason they do that is because along with that offer, that makes it sound like they’re trying to help you comes what’s called a release; a release of all claims. They make you sign that. That means that once you accept that check, it’s over. A lawyer’s not going to be able to help you anymore. Do not accept quick offers from insurance companies. They are trying to hurt you and help themselves.
