Should I take the initial offer from the insurance company for a nursing home abuse claim?


In a nursing home negligence type claim, it is rare to get an early offer from nursing home insurance companies. There is a procedure that has to be worked through that the legislature has set forth, and what we have to do is clear a lot of hurdles and make sure that we have all the documentation necessary to present your claim. At the time that a first offer is made, it is generally not in your best interest to accept that offer unless you simply want the case to go away. If it is your desire to do that, we at Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz, certainly looking out for your interest, we’ll do that for you, but it is typically not advisable to accept the very first offer, as most times things develop as time goes on. More facts are uncovered, and the offer typically goes up the more that we are able to put time and effort and energy into fully documenting and fully putting together your case and your injuries.
