What makes a fair settlement?

At The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation, our motto is, “A Fair Settlement Is No Accident.” People ask us all the time – what exactly is a fair settlement? In the context of what we do as a personal injury law firm, a fair settlement means ensuring that everything the client has lost due to their injury is recovered. This can be complex in many cases, and very often, people are unaware that receiving a quick check does not make a fair settlement. 

Having an attorney who is experienced in a court of law and in discovery depositions can make a huge difference in your case. An attorney with this experience knows that a quick settlement is not beneficial to the client, especially when that client has an injury that will affect them for the rest of their life. If you receive a check quickly during your personal injury case, it could mean that there are stones left unturned. A fair settlement takes thoroughness; listing, describing, and asking for every form of damages that your client has had. This doesn’t happen in a quick settlement. Attorneys after a quick check are not thinking about medical care or procedures that will be needed ten years down the road due to their client’s injury.

Lawyers who are interested in a quick check over a fair settlement are sometimes even caving to insurance companies’ interests. Insurance companies try to settle cases as early as possible because the severe pain from an injury often doesn’t present itself on the first day, the first week, or even the first month following an accident. Adrenaline can mask symptoms for quite a few hours after a traumatic experience like a car wreck. Signing a release before the client realizes the extent of their injuries allows insurance companies to take the cheapest way out and avoid proper payment for treatment of serious injuries. 

Our team at The Glenn Armentor Law Corporation understands the many complexities to personal injury lawsuits and the time it takes to investigate them thoroughly. We won’t leave you out in the cold just for the sake of a quick check.

Our attorneys, paralegals, and Investigation Team all work hard to ensure that you get a fair settlement. If you’ve experienced an injury due to an accident of any kind, don’t hesitate to reach out to us today at 337.233.1471.
