Settling a case means that you agree to accept money in return for dropping your action against the person who injured you. This usually involves signing a formal document to release the other side of any further liability. An experienced attorney can help you decide whether to accept a settlement offer and will be able to provide a realistic assessment of whether a lawsuit based on your claim will be successful. A case can be settled at any time, even after a lawsuit is filed, including before trial or even after a case has been tried but before a jury reaches a verdict.
