When should I settle with the insurance company in my Florida auto accident case?

When should you settle with your insurance company? We get this question all the time. It becomes an issue of your health to be honest with you. We have to look at your health and we have to determine what's wrong with you. We wait until you hit what's called maximum medical improvement, or MMI. Basically what that means is you may not necessarily be done treating, but the doctors have determined everything that's wrong with you and have gotten you to the maximum benefit that their medical care can get you. Once you're there, we combine all your medical records, all your bills, police report, property damage, photos and any other evidence on the case, it could be witness statements, combine that all together and do a demand on your behalf. Only when you get to maximum medical improvement and we know the totality of the insurance and the totality of your damages, that's when it's time to start determining if we can settle your case.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
