Personal Injury Lawsuit Settlement

Share This Article

Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant in a PI lawsuit, there are some issues that absolutely must be considered once the legal action reaches the settlement phase, such as:

- The overall value of the situation

- Verdicts and pay outs in similar cases and trials

- The opportunity the case may even be called for trial

- Chances of actually successful the lawsuit at demo

- Publicity, both good and bad, for both sides

- The opportunity of both personal and business information being made public at trial or through the discovery process

- Difficulties in trying the situation

- Disadvantages in both your and your opponent's evidence

- Whether your opponent is willing to go to trial

- What you are willing to acknowledge to settle the circumstance

To settle a case in your favour, you can also contact legal professionals via or similar sources. Settlements are not any less complicated than court trials; in order to recover what you are entitled to, you should talk to a personal injury lawyer who can describe your legal options as well as the pro's and con's of accepting a settlement versus taking your personal injury legal action to trial. The damages that one encounters should be paid by the defendant's insurer.
