What should I do if the insurance company offers me a check right away?
If you’ve been involved in a car crash in the state of Florida, it’s always a good idea to preserve all of the evidence and get the police to the scene right away. However, it’s typically not a good idea to accept the first offer from an insurance company. You have to keep in mind that the insurance company’s job is to save money on behalf of the company, and on behalf of its insured. Its job is also to get a release, however, so typically the first offer that an insurance company will make might be lower than what they’re willing to pay after some sort of negotiation, so typically it’s never a good idea to accept the first offer.
