A settlement offer is an agreement between two parties to end a lawsuit
through monetary payment prior to jurisdiction. More often than not, Tampa
personal injury claims are settled before making it to the trial phase.
Taking a case to the courtroom can result in added anxiety, uncertainty
and expenses. So, an out-of-court settlement tends to works in the client’s
favor because it eliminates the element of risk which is often daunting
for clients who are going through an already difficult time as it is.
Vanguard Attorneys prides itself on providing the highest quality client
services. When our legal team works on settling a case before trial we
are committed to doing so in the best possible manner to help our clients
receive the compensation they deserve. With any case that we handle, we
understand that communication with our clients is crucial and we make
sure to guide them through each step of the process.
Our legal team will begin by explaining everything that must be considered
when assessing the value of a settlement offer. These factors include:
• Severity of injuries
• Treatment Required
• Medical Bills
• Extent of negligence or wrongdoing
• Lost Wages
• Insurance Coverage
• Other Damages
We also keep our clients informed when it comes time to make a decision
regarding the settlement offer. This offer can come from the negligent
party or as a demand from our law firm. Our legal team advises our clients
as to whether the other party is offering to pay the amount necessary
to recover from all of the damages caused.
In some instances, the opposing party is not willing to offer a client
the compensation they are entitled to before jurisdiction. In these cases,
it is important for clients to know that their attorney has experience
and is confident in trial. Our team at Vanguard Attorneys is prepared
represent our clients in the courtroom if necessary. With trial experience,
we know the complexities that accompany litigation and we are prepared
to fight until we receive just results.
