Beware the “Quick Settlement.” Don't Settle Your Claims Before Consulting Tom Chase
Perhaps the most common and regrettable mistake people make after suffering a serious personal injury — or losing a loved one in a case of wrongful death — is accepting a quick insurance settlement. Insurance carriers often make “quick offers to settle,” motivated by the knowledge that you are vulnerable, overwhelmed, confused and many times under the influence of prescription pain killers your doctors have provided. They know that an attorney will likely recover more than you would be able to negotiate on your own. As one of the first ten Supreme Court Certified mediators, Tom strives to make your case understandable to all involved in the process.
