An attorney will evaluate the facts and respond within hours on whether you have a case.
How do I know that the settlement will be satisfactory to me for my personal injury case if you are my attorney?
In North Carolina, Virginia and most other states, an attorney, whether in a personal injury case or any other type of civil case, does not have the authority to act on a settlement offer or accept a settlement offer without the client's express approval so there will no settlement without your approval. As a matter of fact, if any settlement offer is made, attorneys must convey it to a client, and the get the client's permission before responding with a different settlement demand in response. And it is basic law that an attorney cannot accept a settlement from an insurance company or their lawyer without the client's permission.
