Should I accept a check from the at-fault driver or their insurance company after my Florida auto accident case?
The question is, should you accept a check direct from an insurance company or direct from a defendant driver without consulting an attorney? The answer is almost always no. There are a lot of pitfalls in just accepting a check, whether it's not knowing how much insurance is available or not knowing what sort of bills or liens that you're going to owe. It's always a good idea to consult an experienced personal injury attorney, get their opinion on it, before you just accept a check.
