What factors determine if my case should settle and who makes that decision?
There are several factors you need to consider before you settle any case. While every case is different, all share two things that affect the chances of success; the extent of harms and losses that you've suffered, and how difficult will it be to prove that the other person is at fault?
How much you're willing to compromise your case depends on these two factors, and they can vary widely from case to case.
Of course, you also have to consider the amount of insurance that the wrongdoer carries.
We will analyze these factors with you before we advise you on any settlement offer. But, ultimately, who makes the decision? You do.
