Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident and the Insurer has made you an offer of settlement. Before you accept that offer you should obtain legal advice.
Peter Moore has recently acted for two separate people who were injured in motor vehicle accidents as a result of the negligence of another person. The injured lady was offered $14,000.00 and Peter was able to pursue her matter to a settlement of $82,500.00. The injured man was offered $200,000.00 and Peter pursued the matter to a hearing where an award in excess of $500,000.00 was made. Both clients were very happy.
It is in the interests of the Insurer to finalise a matter as quickly as possible and in most cases the amount offered will be minimal. Never accept an offer made without taking good legal advice. Peter has one person come to see him who had settled the claim himself for $5,000.00 without advice. The true value of the claim was in excess of $100,000.00 but it was then too late to do anything about it.
