Should I Settle My Personal Injury Claim?

Posted Friday, August 27, 2021 by Chris Thayer

If you suffered an injury due to another’s negligence, there is no telling what you are feeling right now. You might be angry, overwhelmed, or just focused on trying to get by. There is no right way to feel in the aftermath of an accident, and there is no playbook for how to handle it or what to do moving forward. One option is bringing a personal injury lawsuit. A successful personal injury lawsuit can restore you to the position you would have been in financially had the accident never occurred. You can receive compensation through an award decided in court by a jury or through a settlement. If you are currently contemplating whether to accept a settlement or take your chances at trial, the following explores some of the benefits of settling outside of court.

The information in this article is intended to be general. However, if you would like personalized feedback based on your specific situation, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Pivotal Law Group are ready to help and encourage you to schedule a consultation.
