What does it mean to "settle" a construction accident case?

When you settle a construction accident case you agree to accept money in return for dismissing your construction accident injury claim against the defendants who are legally responsible for your injury. You sign documents releasing the defendants from any further liability. To help you decide whether to accept the settlement offer, your New York Construction Accident lawyer at Turley, Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP will provide a realistic assessment of a range of possible verdict amounts and how long it may take to get to trial. Settlement can take place at any point in a New York construction accident lawsuit, including before trial, after a construction accident case has been tried but before a jury reaches a verdict, or after trial while your case is on appeal.
