Accepting the First Settlement Offer

Learn why accepting the first settlement offer isn’t a good idea. Schedule a free consultation with our Utah personal injury lawyers today.


Should I take the first settlement offer from an insurance company?


When negotiating with an insurance provider in Utah, we never recommend taking the first offer. In fact, unless the insurance adjuster is offering one-hundred percent of the insurance policy, we have never had a situation where an insurance adjuster is unwilling to give more money above and beyond their first offer. We do not recommend that if an insurance adjuster offers some amount of money, that that is an offer that you should take. It’s our experience that there is typically more money to offer, more room to negotiate with, and we can help you through that process.
