Can a Personal Injury Settlement Improve My Quality of Life?

After a serious, catastrophic car or truck accident, a personal injury settlement or verdict may be in the millions of dollars. However, there is a myth that this amount of money is a windfall to a client. In this video, Philadelphia lawyer Ken Rothweiler explains that this money is used to care for the person, for ongoing medical treatments, to make up for lost wages that the person can no longer earn themselves. So, while a settlement can certainly improve the person’s quality of life, nothing can truly replace what has been lost and this money is only attempting to make the person or family whole again. Video Transcription: Most of the time, you know, people think sometimes that a big award is a windfall. I’ve been practicing 35 years. It’s never been a windfall for any of my clients. And even clients that have been rewarded millions of dollars,…

Should I Settle a Personal Injury Case or Go to Trial?

It is always the client’s decision whether to settle a personal injury case or go to trial, but an experienced litigator will be able to offer a legal opinion as to the fairness of the offer. At our law firm, our attorneys know what is a full and fair settlement offer, and when they believe a jury would provide a better recovery. In this video, personal injury lawyer Fred Eisenberg explains a situation where, although there were settlement offers made before the trial date, he and his law partner decided to go forward to have a jury assess the damages. Watch this video to see the result of going to trial instead of simply accepting a lower settlement offer.
