If it was YOU, would YOU accept the settlement amount?
All too often we see cases being settled not for FULL value. We understand and recognize the value of money and that attorneys and law firms are running a business, however we want to make sure that YOU are getting FULL value for your claim.
Here are three things to ask your San Diego personal injury lawyer before accepting your settlement?
1) Are there any similar verdicts
A verdict is a decision that is rendered by a jury in a courtroom.
Often there are similar verdicts either in the venue where your case is located or some other courthouse that could give you an idea of what your case is worth. Ask your attorney, are there similar verdicts that they can show you? this will allow you to compare the facts and injuries of that case against your case to better assess whether you're getting a fair settlement.
2) Does your attorney have a similar verdict
Ask your attorney if they have tried a similar case as yours. If so, ask that they share that verdict with you so you can get an idea whether what the insurance company is offering you is fair and reasonable settlement. Without having something to compare to, it is difficult for you to determine whether the settlement being offered is fair.
3) How much money will YOU be receiving after all the fees and costs
You want to make sure your attorney provides you the net amount that you will be receiving after the attorneys fees, doctors fees, and costs have been taken out.
Make sure YOU are getting the full value for your claim. Often times, the attorneys in the interest of closing a file are not studying the file completely and want to settle claims early on. As attorneys we have a duty of loyalty to our clients, which requires us to place the interests of our clients AHEAD of our own in each and every circumstance.
