Hi. I’m John Medler, personal injury lawyer at The Medler Law Firm – Personal Injury & Accident Attorneys. Today I’d like to talk about the question of whether you have to accept a personal injury settlement that’s offered by the defendant. And the answer is, of course not.
You are the boss as to whether you accept a settlement or not. In fact, your attorney can’t make that decision for you. Now your attorney can give you advice and say, “I think you should take the settlement or you should not take the settlement.” But at the end of the day you have the right to decide whether to accept the settlement or not. No one can force you to accept any kind of personal injury settlement.
