When I give a client my recommendation as to whether or not I think my client should accept the defendant’s last best offer or go to litigation, I take several factors into consideration that I review with my clients:
a) Do we need one or more of my client’s doctors to testify? If so, how much will they charge?
b) Do we need any non-medical experts (accident re-constructionist, bio-mechanist, economist, etc)
Deciding on whether to accept a settlement offer can be a very daunting task. After considering all of your options, it really comes down to what you would decide. Having the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer will truly make all the difference in a process like this.
Make sure you retain the right law firm. Ask questions, interview each law firm you have in mind until you find one that fits your needs the most. Remember, experience is everything.
