The NYC attorneys at Pulvers, Pulvers, & Thompson LLP know that the eventual potential settlement of a personal injury case involves many considerations.
First, you and your NYC personal injury attorney need to determine whether a settlement offer is premature. In other words, do we have all of the facts that are needed need to judge whether a proposed settlement offer is sufficient for all of the consequences of your injury, both for immediate injury and damages that might be incurred over time? Do you have all of the medical and financial information that you should have?
Second, at Pulvers, Pulvers, & Thompson, our seven decades of practical experience have taught us how to determine if a settlement offer will truly compensate you for all aspects of your injury. For example, a settlement might seem attractive, and you might think that your damages will be compensated. However, our experiencedNYC injury attorneys can evaluate the offer with the benefit of their knowledge of similar injuries and what those injuries entail. Most importantly, our effective attorneys can help you determine what your future needs may be. Perhaps you have been out of work because of an injury. Perhaps your future employment prospects have been changed as a result of your injury. Perhaps you have lost contributions to pension and benefit plans. There are a myriad issues to consider before even thinking of accepting a settlement offer, and we can help you determine if an offer will provide the level of compensation you need and deserve. We will guide you fully through the negotiation stages of your case.
Lastly, any “final” settlement offer represents what the offering party or insurance company is willing to pay to settle. However, a settlement offer often simply does not reflect what your recovery should be. In those cases, we will pursue your claim through a trial. We will never encourage you to settle unless we strongly believe the final offer is to your best advantage. We are very aggressive and effective litigators on your behalf.
