What Happens if My Injury Gets Worse after Receiving My Settlement?

When you suffer a severe physical injury because of a car accident, an accident at work, medical malpractice, or some other event caused by someone else’s negligence, the financial strains can be life-altering. Even though you were injured through no fault of your own, you’re left with expensive medical bills, lost income from being unable to work, as well as a great deal of physical pain and other symptoms.

If you’ve already signed an agreement to settle for a certain amount, there may be little you can do if your injuries progress and cause further medical expense. It depends on the wording of the agreement, but most often you release the responsible party from further liability once you sign it. If you haven’t signed any agreements, then you may have some options.

The Importance of Talking to an Attorney Early On

It’s important to have your claim properly valued. As experienced attorneys, we have some idea of what your case may be worth, and whether you are likely to face expensive future medical costs. Once we learn more about your injury, we are in the best position to negotiate for future medical costs and for maximum compensation.

That’s why it is critical to speak to our attorneys soon after you are injured. The insurance company may be trying to make a quick and low settlement offer so they can close the case easily. Our attorneys can determine whether you are getting a fair shake. We will pursue the best possible results in your case and fight for every dollar you are due.
