A closer look at personal injury law

The difference between a settlement and a personal injury lawsuit

In most cases, the best way to get the money you deserve to pay for your accident-related expenses is to accept a settlement offer or file a personal injury lawsuit. What’s the difference?

A settlement is a one-time payment designed to pay for all injury-related expenses, including future anticipated expenses. So if you decide to accept a settlement offer, you cannot ask for any additional money in the future, even if your injury-related expenses suddenly go up.

A personal injury lawsuit is a legal action filed by the injury victim in a civil court. If a judge or jury rules in favor of your lawsuit, they will award damages, the legal term for financial compensation.
