PERSONAL INJURY LAW
PERSONAL INJURY AND COMPROMISE ACT
Before a personal injury lawsuit reaches open court, settlement talks occur between the plaintiff’s personal injury attorney and the attorney for the defense. If the parties can’t reach a fair settlement, the plaintiff’s attorney files for formal litigation, and the case is heard by a judge. In some cases, especially those where it’s difficult to prove fault, the defendant can offer a compromised settlement in order avoid further legal proceedings. However, whether or not the compromised offer is accepted is up to the plaintiff and his or her attorney. It’s important to take several things into consideration before accepting any type of settlement, including:
- The odds of winning the lawsuit.
- The least amount the plaintiff is willing to accept to settle the case.
- Ways other than a monetary settlement that the defendant can remedy the situation.
- The amount of time the plaintiff is willing to spend negotiating a settlement.
