INSULTING LOWBALL OFFERS

How low(ball) can you go?

Every week I hear about a representative making insulting lowball offers to injured victims or dissatisfied consumers.

Here are some that come to mind:

Grocery chain had trip hazard, elderly lady falls and is injured-- offered a $50.00 gift card!

Auto insurance company offered $250.00 “pain and suffering” plus medical bills for next year two (2) days after a serious crash!

Satellite television provider cannot show multiple local channels- offered a $5.00 discount!

Large insurance company offers $1,500.00 on totaled vintage car worth $9,000!

Commercial insurance company once told my client, before he hired me, that $2,000 is all they would ever pay, “attorney or no attorney!” I think the final number they paid was almost 100 times that.

Car insurance offers to pay $200 to young child who has permanent scarring due to their insured’s negligence.

Funeral Home mixes up bodies, buries wrong remains-- offers small discount.

Restaurant mistakenly has two people arrested-- sent a fruit basket!

Homeowners offers $200.00 on still new living room set worth over $1,500.00!

Low ball offers on injury cases from auto insurance companies only make people angry and cause them to hire attorneys.

I guess I should thank them?
