I’m getting calls asking me to settle my TARC accident case that occurred very recently. Should I accept the settlement that is offered?

We can’t answer that without knowing more about your injuries and about the settlement that is being offered. However, we would encourage you to be cautious about accepting any settlement that is offered quickly and before you have spoken with a lawyer.

Why You Should Be Cautious

Quick settlement offers typically benefit the insurance company making the offer. If you were hurt on Route 23 (Broadway), Route 49 (Westport Express), or elsewhere on a Transit Authority of River City (TARC) bus route then your primary objective is to get a fair recovery for your accident injuries. TARC and any responsible insurance companies have a different objective. They want to maximize their profits by paying you as little as possible for your claim.

How to Take the Guesswork Out of Accepting a Settlement

At some point you may be offered a settlement that is fair and that does compensate you for your injuries. You may be able to accept the settlement and put this whole nightmare behind you. However, before you can do that you need to know if the settlement is fair.

You can do that by understanding your rights. You can read about your legal rights in the free articles, blog posts, and FAQs available on this website and you can contact an experienced personal injury lawyer today through our online chat feature.

Do not take a chance with your recovery. Instead, learn whether the settlement being offered is fair and be confident in your decision about whether or not to accept the offer.
