Personal Injury Settlement

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.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice \’super losses\’ on the rise

Sometimes when people see a headline about a medical malpractice case in which the victim of a doctor’s negligence receives substantial compensation, they think it’s like the victim won the lottery. The problem with this line of thinking is that it overlooks the fact that victims of medical malpractice have been injured by a doctor. That means that the higher the compensation they received, the more extensive the damage they

Personal Injury

How a Trial Attorney Can Make or Break Your Personal Injury Case

You take your personal safety seriously. You are careful in the decisions you make and the actions you take. You are especially alert when on the road. You drive in a lawful and responsible manner to avoid getting into an accident. Unfortunately, not every driver has this attitude, and some individuals forget that driving is a privilege, not a right. Some drivers are reckless and irresponsible; when this happens, car

Medical Malpractice

One important reason to work with an experienced med mal attorney: gathering evidence

Last time, we began speaking about the potential importance increased documentation of medical care and surgical procedures could play in reducing the incidence of medical malpractice in the United States. As we noted, the suggestion that health care providers routinely tape surgeries and other procedures has certainly been met with some resistance, understandably so. For one thing, routine video documentation of health care delivery could potentially provide a significant avenue
