You Can Receive a Settlement Offer in a Wide Range of Cases
There are several types of cases in which you may be presented with a settlement offer. These include:
If you are involved in a car accident that occurs due to no fault of your own, the at-fault driver or their insurance company may contact you. At this point, they may offer you a lowball settlement in the hopes that you will make a rash decision and accept it. When you have a top-notch lawyer at your side, you can avoid accepting any car accident settlement proposal that falls short of your expectations.
You can sue a product reseller or manufacturer if you buy an item that does not work correctly and causes an injury. When you file a product liability lawsuit, the defendant in your case may propose a settlement. Your attorney should help you weigh the pros and cons of this offer and decide if it is in your best interests to accept it.
If you get injured during a dog bite accident, you can sue the pet’s owner. When you file your lawsuit, the pet’s owner may try to convince you to settle. By hiring a best-in-class lawyer, you can avoid the pressure that comes with receiving and accepting a subpar settlement.
The team at BDIW Law has many years of experience with negotiating settlements in a variety of cases. If you want to file a lawsuit against a negligent party, please get in touch with us. We can connect you with an attorney that will not accept a settlement unless you approve it.

Choose an Attorney that Values Communication and Collaboration
If you want to get a fair settlement, it is paramount to hire an attorney that allocates the time, energy, and resources required to learn about your case. This lawyer can teach you about things like the statute of limitations in Oklahoma for personal injury claims. They can also help you file your lawsuit in accordance with this statute and make sure you request the most damages possible.
The best attorney will encourage you to pursue economic and non-economic damages. You can seek economic damages based on your medical bills, lost wages, and other quantifiable losses. Meanwhile, you can request non-economic damages based on pain, suffering, and other subjective losses.
Do not expect your attorney to settle for anything less than what you deserve. Your attorney should account for your short- and long-term damages. They will keep you in the loop about any settlement offers that the defendant proposes, too.
Your Attorney Should Be Open and Honest About a Settlement Offer
It is common for a plaintiff’s attorney to discuss a settlement with the defendant’s lawyer before a trial. Together, both parties’ attorneys may find they can bridge the gap between their respective parties. This can lead to a settlement that works well for the plaintiff and defendant.
Your attorney should come forward with any settlement offer they receive. They can explain the proposal and answer your legal questions about it. In addition, your lawyer can give you insights into what can happen if you approve, reject, or counter the offer.
Ideally, your lawyer will let you know if a settlement is less than what you deserve. Your attorney may encourage you to decline this settlement, but you have the option to make any decision you would like. If you ultimately agree with your attorney, you can reject the proposal and continue to work with them to build your case.

Tips to Find an Attorney that Can Help You Get a Reasonable Settlement
You may feel like it is impossible to find a lawyer that will not accept a settlement without your consent. Thankfully, there are things you can do to put yourself in the best position to hire a lawyer that is committed to getting you the most compensation they can. These include:
Learn About a Lawyer’s Case Experience
Take a look at an attorney’s website and search online for information about the lawyer. On top of these things, you can call an attorney and set up a date and time to meet with them. Doing these things allows you to learn about a lawyer’s approach to different types of cases and how the attorney handles settlement proposals.
Check Out a Lawyer’s Client Testimonials
Read through an attorney’s client testimonials so you can get a good idea about what it is like to work with this lawyer. These testimonials provide firsthand insights into how a lawyer supports their clients. If a lawyer has shown they are capable of securing large settlements for their clients, you may want to hire this attorney to represent you.
Partner with an Attorney that Prioritizes Your Case
Search for a lawyer that does not require you to pay them unless you win or settle your case. This attorney puts their reputation on the line. If you hire this lawyer and they do not get you the settlement you want, you do not have to pay them.
