Should I settle my personal injury case?
If you’ve been wrongfully injured, you might want to file a personal injury claim to get compensated for your losses. While some of those lawsuits might go all the way to trial, the majority of cases are settled out of court. A settlement gives up your right to pursue further legal action in exchange for money.
How does a settlement work? And is it right for me?
It depends. What’s more important is getting expert help. After a thorough assessment of your case, a lawyer can help determine what’s right for you. It usually involves a back and forth negotiation process between attorneys from both sides.
When do settlement negotiations begin?
Settlement discussions usually won’t begin until all sides have conducted rigorous pretrial investigations. Starting talks too early can create a variety of issues, resulting in a low settlement offer. It’s often better to build up your case and wait.
What will negotiations cover?
Your attorney takes everything into account when negotiating with the other party:
- The extent of your insurance coverage
- Determining who is at fault for the accident
- The severity of your injuries
- The type and extent of your medical treatment
What happens next?
After you settle, there’s no turning back. Before you sign anything, it’s important to review all the terms of your offer with your attorney, including payment terms, confidentiality, and more.
