Should I Accept the First Settlement Offer in a Personal Injury Case?

If you are involved in a personal injury case, you are likely aware most of them never make it to trial. This means most of them reach settlement in the form of the opposite side’s insurance company making an offer which you have the choice to accept or deny. Many people receive their first settlement offer and rush to accepting it because they weren’t expecting to receive a figure of that extent, or perhaps because they wish the process to be over already. However, this isn’t always the best decision to make.

Some legal teams will advise you reject the first offer no matter what it is. At Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP, we believe in never say never. According to your specific circumstances as well as your specific offer, it is particularly significant you make several considerations before deciding to accept or reject an offer. Critical issues to consider include where the offer is coming from (i.e., the defendant or his or her insurance company), the timing in which you received the offer, and what your New York City personal injury attorney believes is the best course of action.
