If I am offered a settlement early on, should I accept it?
While it may be tempting to accept a settlement early on in the process to speed matters along, it may not be in your best interest to do so. In fact, these kinds of offers are often only extended when it is fairly obvious that the victim is not at fault in the incident. With that in mind, you should seriously consider consulting with a personal injury attorney before making any decision regarding the settlement you have been offered, especially since that settlement may be considerably less than you anticipated.
