Hi, My question is that My lawyer is telling to settle the case with a low offer. We demanded 45,000 and the insurance responded 5500 then I told him that was too low . He negotiated the insurance and they offered 9500 . I again told the lawyer it's still very low and he told me that if we go to trial that we will have a problem with the medical papers he said " There is no one straight doctor you visited 5 times and that will create a problem because the insurance will hire there own doctor to evaluate you . It seem to that he doesn't want go to trail . what shall I do in scenario?
You might want to get a second opinion. It sounds like your attorney doesn’t believed that you have a strong case.
First, the firm is a debt relief agency according to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We help people file for bankruptcy. We also do other stuff and we do it well, but Congress wants me to post this notice. Second, nothing on this site is legal advice. You are not my client unless you enter into a written agreement signed by you and me.
I agree, you should seek a second opinion from an experienced Personal Injury attorney. Your present attorney could be right and maybe he/she could be wrong in his/her analysis.
You decide whether to settle or not. Your lawyer only advises you. As the other attorneys suggest, seek other advice.
When choosing a lawyer, find one who is Board Certified as a trial specialist. While most people don't want to go to trial, you want lawyer who's tried a substantial number of cases and not afraid to go to trial.
We don't have the facts of your case. Many cases in Minnesota settle for less that what you're being offered. Some settle for more.
