People who are unfamiliar with the average cost of an accident often see personal injury settlements as inflated. They consider the idea of going to court to be a long, drawn-out process, and often settle quickly to avoid expense and problems. This is just what the insurance companies want.
In fact, many initial settlements offered by insurance companies do not even cover the basic costs of an injury, leaving the victim to fund the rest of the expenses, often at a time when income is low or non-existent. Insurance companies know that most cases are settled outside of courtrooms, but they may often hint to victims that they are headed for years of litigation in order to frighten them into a settlement. Settling under these conditions often means giving up your rights and taking a much smaller amount for your injuries than that to which you are entitled.
