You may be offered a monetary settlement from a defendant after filing a personal injury claim. Many defendants prefer settlements because they avoid the high costs and lengthy time commitment of litigation. Whether to take a settlement offer is your decision, not your attorney’s, although your attorney may give you a recommendation on whether the settlement is a good one or not. If you decide to settle, the settlement will be just as binding as a court order. If a party breaches the settlement, that party may be held in contempt of court.
