A Lawyer Can Give You Settlement Tips

A question many personal injury victims have is whether they should settle or not. Depending on many factors, accepting a settlement may be in your best interests.

Following are some tips on when to accept a settlement:

  • Never settle without a lawyer: You must never settle or sign anything without consulting your attorney. When a client hires us, we review his or her case and examine any settlement offers. Then we advise my client on whether signing a settlement would be beneficial.
  • Consider the evidence: When deciding whether you should accept a settlement or go to trial, you must consider the evidence. Is your case strong enough to go to trial? Do you have enough evidence? Are you able to prove the existence of negligence? As a seasoned injury lawyer, we can help you answer these questions.
  • Consider the amount being offered: Next, you must consider the amount being offered. After studying your case, we can inform you as to whether a settlement offer is sufficient considering the degree of your injuries.
