Construction companies, their insurers, and their lawyers will sometimes attempt to offer a quick settlement outside of court to victims who have not yet found legal representation. They do so in order to avoid an official admission of blame and the possibility of being forced to pay a large judgment after a trial.
The construction company and its insurer will have their own team of experts that will be ready to investigate the scene of the accident immediately after it occurs. They may then use any information they gain from this investigation in combination with their legal expertise to intimidate a victim without legal representation into taking an unfair and insufficient settlement. However, we believe that you deserve the full and just amount of compensation available to you by law.
