Every settlement offer proposed to us will be discussed with you. No settlement offer will be taken without your consent (see contract for details).
As a general rule, personal injury lawyers are not allowed to accept a settlement on behalf of their clients without the client's consent. It is important for the you to be involved in the settlement process and to make the final decision about whether to accept a settlement offer.
In most cases, we'll present the settlement offer to you and explain the terms and potential consequences of accepting or rejecting the offer. We'll provide our considered opinion on the offer, but ultimately it is up to you to decide whether to accept it.
