When Is A Settlement A Good Idea?

A question attorney Roy K. Lisko is often asked is why don’t we file the lawsuit immediately. When a lawsuit is filed, and sometimes it is necessary to do so, you can plan on spending up to two years or more battling the case through the court system.

Of course, that is a very expensive proposition involving expert witness fees. This can cost tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention the time you as an injured person will need to attend various court proceedings.

“In my experience, most cases are better settled outside of the courtroom,” says attorney Lisko. “Over the past few decades I have seen that injured people receive more money in a shorter period of time when a settlement is handled correctly. There also may be tax advantages to certain types of settlements.”
