If you're approaching the settlement stage of your Georgia injury claim, thoughtfully consider: 


  • what your chances are of winning the case if it went to trial;
  • the overall value of your claim;
  • financial factors and if the settlement is comparable to your injuries;
  • all the difficulties you'd face if the claim went to court;
  • publicity factors (both positive and negative);
  • how similar cases were settled;
  • holes and weaknesses in your and the defendant's evidence; and
  • what you're willing to compromise on. 

Understanding the Finality of a Settlement

After sustaining injuries in an accident, your anxiety over the case and mounting medical bills could cause you to rush too quickly into agreeing to a settlement.

While it may be tempting to sign the first offer that comes your way, it's imperative to keep in mind that settlements are final; you can't change your mind later and request more money once the paperwork is completed and signed, even if your condition worsens.

This is why it's important to work with an attorney throughout your claims process - you'll have someone who can provide you with valuable knowledge and advice. If you have a Georgia claim, lawyers at a Forest Park injury law firm can assist you at every stage of your case.
