The insurance company has quickly offered a check for the limits of the policy, is there any reason to seek the advice of an attorney?

Yes. Insurance companies are for-profit companies that have adjusters and attorneys working on their behalf. They are not working for you. Lee Law Offices, P.A. advises injured parties to never sign any documents, accept any checks or make any statements to insurance companies or their agents before talking to an experienced Carolina injury lawyer. The actions you take and the interactions you have with insurance companies can have a lasting impact on your case and even prevent you from obtaining the compensation you deserve if your injuries become worse or other factors unknown at the time make your case worth more. (This is one of the reasons insurance companies can try to make a quick settlement.)
