Q My doctors insurance carrier has offered me a settlement and I need the money now. Should I accept?
AIt depends on the circumstances. Will the injury or problem you believe resulted from sub standard medical care result in future medical expenses or loss of earnings? While it may be tempting to take the money and run, be aware that in situation such as this, those offering the settlement are working on behalf of the healthcare practitioner. Accepting a settlement today might not address your needs down the road. You may want to check with us. If we believe that the offer made to you is reasonable we will tell you so at no charge.
