Releases and Personal Injury Settlements

It is absolutely unethical for a lawyer to fail to immediately notify the client of any settlement offers. Even if the offer is extremely low, the client must be notified and given the option of accepting the offer.

More Factors Involved in Increasing Value of a Personal Injury Lawsuit
