Should I accept a settlement offer in my Florida bicycle accident case?

To accept a settlement offer in a Florida bicycle accident case, it's important to consider that there are six types of damages. There's past medical bills, future medical bills, past lost wages, future lost wages, and then past pain and suffering as well as future pain and suffering. If you take the combination of those six categories of damages and add them up, that would determine the total value of a settlement.

Sometimes it's a good idea to settle a case early on because the cost of litigation can make filing a claim in the court system not worth it. But sometimes it's a good idea to take a settlement offer, reject that offer, and move forward into litigation.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
