If I’ve been offered a settlement, should I accept it?
If you have sustained injuries due to the negligence of another party, you may receive a settlement offer. Although it may be tempting to take the settlement to avoid legal proceedings and put any trauma behind you as quickly as possible, it is inadvisable to do so without consulting with a personal injury attorney. Sometimes, settlements do not sufficiently cover the expenses of the victim. Additionally, they are often offered in cases where it is clear the victim was not at fault for the accident.
If you have been offered a settlement after an accident, a personal injury attorney of Ritter & Associates can discuss the particulars of your case with you and help you establish a plan for moving forward. Call our San Diego offices today at (619) 296-0123.
