When should you settle your injury claim?
Miley Legal Group
One of the most frequently asked question that we at The Miley Legal Group receive from prospective clients is when they should settle their injury claim. Our response is, never settle any claim until you are fully recovered or as recovered as you are going to get. Unfortunately not everyone will recover to 100% of their prior accident self. Your doctor will help determine when there is nothing more that can be done.
If you settle to early, you risk the chance to have all of your recupuration covered. Once a settlement is singe, you can not go back and claim additional expenses past the settlement date. So, if you are not in a position that you have either fully recovered or recovered to the point that a doctor advises you that there is nothing further to be done, do not settle. If you have any additional questions, please contact our office through the contact us form or by phone.
