What is an out-of-court settlement?

An out of court settlement is any monetary offer made to you by an insurance company or their attorney to settle your claim against them, without going to court.

Over 90% of all civil lawsuits, end up being settled out of court. It has become almost standard practice within the industry. Settlement offers will and can be offered to you at any time after the accident and right up to the point where the jury is about to read the verdict.
