Re: Should I Accept the First Medical Settlement Offer
That's like saying building a house is cut and dry, I just don't know how to read blue prints or use a saw.
To me, this is pretty cut and dry. I'm just not sure what a fair settlement amount would be
, or if I can even counter...
Deciding whether to counter and calculating the settlement is exactly why people need a lawyer, it's a complicated process - there's nothing "cut and dry" about it.
You can counter offer if you have a basis, you'll need to do a complete evaluation of your medical and come up with a credible figure.
Unless you're capable of doing the hard work, you should take the offer or refuse if you have a hunch its unfair.
That's weird coming from someone who's advising others to consult a lawyer.
And please don't tell me to get a lawyer.
See, right here you said "You really need to consult a local lawyer"
