SETTLEMENT OFFER: My cousin Larry slipped on some slippery substance at the Vons in Chula Vista, California. He went to his doctor who found a spiral fracture in his leg and he had to take four weeks off from work and he may now need surgery. A claims adjuster from Vons offered him $2,500.00 in the form of a check. Should he accept the check or should he hire a Chula Vista Slip and Fall lawyer?

He definitely should contact a Chula Vista Slip and Fall lawyer first to see what kind of case he has.  It can be difficult to know the full impact that an injury will have, following an accident. Which is why it is a good idea to not accept any insurance offer soon after an injury.  Insurance companies understand this and will frequently offer settlements right away to minimize their liability because if they can settle it quickly they save money.  Before your cousin Larry accepts a settlement offer from the insurer, it would be a good idea for her to talk with a Chula Vista slip and fall lawyer first.
