Should I Accept A Settlement After An Injury?

A large part of a successful attorney-client relationship has to do with education. A successful personal injury claim or lawsuit usually involves close collaboration between a lawyer and a client.

Preparing a case for trial includes reaching a target dollar amount that will account for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A detailed investigation, consultations with experts as needed and clear communication among an injured person, doctors and a personal injury lawyer are all important in arriving at that dollar amount.

If you were injured and are represented by a personal injury lawyer — perhaps an attorney from the law offices of Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, in Manhattan — your lawyer should keep you well-informed. A good attorney prepares every case as if for trial, but in actual practice, most injury claims are settled out of court. Whether in settlement negotiations in a law office or in a last-minute pretrial maneuver, an insurance claims adjuster may make a settlement offer to you in an attempt to avoid trial.
