When will my case be ready to settle?

August 11, 2017

We recommend you wait until you’ve been released from treatment, or your doctor says you have improved as much as possible, and that further treatment won’t improve your condition, before settling your case. Once your case is settled, the settlement is for all known and unknown injuries, even ones that may show up down the road. It’s best to wait until you and your doctor are reasonably sure that you understand the full extent of your injuries. We also recommend you talk to your attorney about the time limits you have under the law to resolve your claim, also called a “statute of limitations.”
