    Answered . As you may be aware, the two worst major insurers in the U.S. are Allstate and State Farm. The good hands and good neighbors stuff in their ads is baloney. They don't tend to treat claimants fairly compared with their better competition.

    Your attorney is the only one who can answer your question. In many cases, when you reject an offer there won't be another one (or any new one will be close to the old one), and you're gambling that you may do better at trial (your lawyer can assess if that's a smart move or not). But only your attorney is in a position to know your case well enough to venture a guess. Call him.

    Answered . As Mr. Ashman says, State Farm treat people terribly in these cases, so do not expect a second offer, especially in a conservative jurisdiction like Gwinnett. Prepare for trial and push the case. The will do nothing until you make them.
