Should I accept a settlement offer in my Florida boating accident case?Return to FAQ Videos
Perhaps, depends if you retain competent counsel who knows what he’s doing and he’s reviewed the entire matter, and he gives you advice which is that you should settle. That’s when I would say you absolutely should settle, but maybe you should not, certainly on your own, ever take it upon yourself to look at a matter and settle. Particularly with you have injuries, I would get the matter resolved and wait until you have a lawyer review the matter before you make that very important decision, because you should know this, it will be the first and last time you get to resolve the case. You will be asked to sign a release at the end of your case, which says you can no longer address these issues. So take your time, don’t settle right away, get the right lawyer to review it. Listen to his advice.
