How do i ask for more money in a settlement?

Send a detailed demand letter to the insurance company. Since the insurance company is likely to respond with an offer for an amount lower than what you requested in the demand letter, you must request between 25 and 100 percent more than you would be willing to accept. You might think that you can get money on your own. The insurance company may even pressure you and ask you not to contact an attorney.

They may tell you that you don't need it and they may make you an offer quickly. However, those initial offers are often too low to meet all your needs.
