How is a Settlement Reached in Personal Injury Cases?

A settlement is reached when the defendant agrees to pay a certain amount of money to the plaintiff in order to drop the case. Typically this is the case for most personal injury lawsuits - most cases end in a settlement before a lawsuit is even filed.

The amount of the settlement depends on a wide range of varying factors, including, medical costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. At Piering Law Firm, we will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the justice you deserve. Let us handle the legal aspects of your case so you can focus on taking care of your self and your family.

Answering Your Personal Injury FAQ:

How long do I have to file my injury lawsuit?

  • The California statute of limitations, as addressed in California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, states that victims of personal injury are eligible to file a lawsuit for up to 2 years after the date of their injury. So what does this mean for you? It means you should contact a skilled injury attorney immediately to discuss your case. Filing a lawsuit can take time, and the more time that passes after your injury the more difficult it can be to prove your claim.

Is my personal injury settlement taxable?

  • In general, personal injury settlements that are awarded to replace out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment are not taxable. However, it is important that you discuss your situation with a tax professional if you are concerned about whether or not your settlement may be taxed.

Will my personal injury settlement be public record?

  • This is an important question for some people who want to keep the details of their injury or settlement a private matter. Generally a settlement that is reached out of court will not be public record. However, if a case is settled in court it may be available as public record. This is something to keep in mind when discussing your case with your injury lawyer.
