What is a reasonable settlement?

Seevers v. Montiel, Florida First District Court of Appeal – What happens if coverage for your injury is denied? A woman injured in an automobile accident recently won over $500,000 in attorneys fees and interest, after her reasonable settlement offer was declined. The appellate court stated, “section 768.79, Florida Statutes, which provides incentives to a party to accept a reasonable settlement offer before trial and imposes significant costs on the party who rejects a reasonable offer to settle a dispute before trial.” How your case is resolved, either by settlement or after a trial can have a substantial effect on what you recover. Don’t get injured twice.
