Should I Accept a Personal Injury Settlement?
The Pros & Cons of Settling Your Personal Injury Case
If you were seriously injured, it’s likely that an insurance company will contact you at some point and offer a settlement, often well before you know the nature and extent of any injuries. Essentially, the company is offering to give you a certain amount of money right away in exchange for you giving up any future claim to compensation. Once you sign the agreement, it’s final. This means you need to know whether the amount they are offering you is fair before you sign.
