How Cases Are Resolved: Settlements & Litigation

Determining a fair settlement amount for a personal injury case is not straightforward. Every case is unique, and various factors affect the settlement amount.

Factors such as the type of treatment the person requires, the length of time they need the treatment, and the impact of the injury on their life will affect the settlement amount. Hence, it is difficult to say what a fair settlement would be without evaluating each case. As personal injury attorneys, we help our clients navigate the complex legal process and guide them in compiling evidence from their case.

As for when a victim should consider accepting a settlement offer, this is a personal decision. Insurance companies often try to drag out personal injury cases to push people to settle for less than what they are worth. If a person can wait out a case, they may get a better settlement offer.

In cases of death or catastrophic personal injury, insurance companies may offer a settlement amount quickly. Still, a person should never accept an offer without considering the risks and the pros and cons of the offer.

The Factors That Bring A Case To Litigation
Several factors may cause a permanent or catastrophic injury case to go to litigation. If the insurance company feels that they have any argument for liability that could end up with a verdict in their favor, they will usually push the case into litigation. They may also make lowball settlement offers that are not enough to reimburse the victim for their damages. If a person cannot afford to accept the offer, it may push them into litigation.

Additionally, if the insurance company does not believe that a person has a permanent injury, even if there is a diagnosis from a medical professional, they may push the case into litigation. Insurance companies may also suggest that a person does not have a permanent injury if they have stopped receiving medical treatment. Hence, it is essential to have medical records that show that the person is continuing to receive medical treatment, which serves as evidence of their injuries.
