Personal Injury Settlements
The lawyers at Girdwood & Williams take cases to trial if doing so serves the best interests of the client. However, for most cases, the best outcome for the client is achieved out of court. Most cases settle before they even proceed to a lawsuit or subsequent trial. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in negotiating settlements that are fair and very pleasing to our clients, while allowing our clients to avoid a potentially lengthy and stressful litigation process.
The amount of compensation to which an injured victim is entitled depends on the circumstances surrounding his or her case, including the extent of the injuries and medical care required. Contributory negligence may also be considered in the amount of the settlement. Individuals who suffer long-term or permanent injuries, including brain and spinal cord injuries, are usually entitled to greater compensation than those who suffer relatively short-term injuries. The families of wrongful death victims may be further entitled to compensation for funeral costs, mental anguish, loss of support and companionship, and other losses related directly to the death of their loved one.
