    A Look at How Personal Injury Settlements Are Determined

     

    Out of court settlements benefit both parties. The person who has been injured tends to get paid faster than they would if they had to go through a full trial. An experience that most people find stressful. Nobody enjoys wasting time and money travelling to court.

    FAQs

    Why should I settle my claim? Shouldn’t I file a personal injury lawsuit?

    It is wise to try to settle your claim rather than automatically file a personal injury lawsuit. Doing so is less stressful and faster. Yet, provided you hire an experienced injury lawyer, the payout will be just as good as if you had gone to court.

    How does the insurance decide to offer a settlement?

    The insurance decides to offer a settlement by studying the facts of each case. Provided they find the evidence compelling, they will want to settle out of court. Most insurance companies use a team of in-house experts or consultants to examine the evidence.

    How long does it take to receive an offer of compensation?

    How long it takes to receive an offer of compensation varies. But typically, you will get an initial response in under a month. Diamond & Diamond Law has plenty of experience, so we know how to craft a file that is likely to prompt the other party to respond quickly.
