220 views

Published on

As you begin your personal injury case, here are some basic facts about settlement offers, trial, post-trial motions, and appeals that you should understand.

Settling Your Case
Your personal injury attorney may be able to settle your case without a trial (and sometimes without even a lawsuit).

You Have a Right to Reject Any Settlement Offer
Your attorney cannot settle your case unless you approve and consent. If you are not satisfied with the settlement offer, you have a right to let the jury decide your case.
