The decision to accept an offer of settlement for a personal injury matter is difficult. The facts of your case will help dictate how you proceed, but ultimately the choice to settle is up to you and is a personal decision. We can help you to reach a decision by giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision, and can also help you to understand what it means to settle your case.
Statistics on settlement show that nearly all personal injury cases in the nation settle rather than go to trial. Some of the reasons include:
- Reaching a finalization of the matter without waiting for a trial date from overbooked and overworked Courts.
- Certainty in the results as opposed to the unknown possible verdict of a jury.
- Severity of injuries, with less serious cases being more appropriate for settlement than trial.
Settlement can yield quick results, but it is critical to understand settling will cut off any right you have to make a future claim. Due to the chance that your injuries may not fully develop for quite some time, it can be risky to accept settlement too soon.
