How Can You Negotiate an Allstate Settlement?
Allstate provides insurance coverage to roughly 16 million households. The company offers coverage for auto and home insurance policies and may provide you with a settlement after a collision caused by one of its insured drivers.
However, the agency often tries to minimize compensation to injured drivers, especially with an initial settlement offer. Therefore, it’s essential to negotiate with help from a car accident lawyer.
Your lawyer will review your situation, gather documents to support your story about what happened, and review all legal documents carefully, advising you about whether or not you should accept an offer.
