Without knowing all of the facts of your case and the specific settlement offer, our New York construction accident lawyers can’t tell you whether your individual settlement offer is fair. However, we can give you some things to think about before you accept a settlement offer so that you can determine whether the offer will fairly compensate you for your injuries.
Before you accept a settlement consider whether it compensates you for:
- All of your past, present and anticipated future medical expenses
- Lost income
- Permanent injuries that you may suffer from the accident
- Other damages you’ve incurred as a result of your construction accident injury
Remember, once you accept a settlement it is likely binding. That means that you won’t be able to recover additional money for the same accident injuries in the future. Accordingly, it is important to carefully consider any settlement offer that is made prior to accepting it.
You don’t have to make this determination alone. You may consult with your family, your friends, and an experienced New York construction attorney before you decide whether or not to accept a settlement.
