Settling a case: Why you shouldn't take the first offer

Since a trial is a long process, you may wish to settle your personal injury claim outside court. The problem is that a settlement may not be as much money as you'd have received if you had gone through trial. Sometimes, offers are extremely low, and even though you want to put the past behind you, you shouldn't take what you're offered as if it's the only offer available.

Don't just accept a settlement after a serious car crash

Serious car accidents happen every single day in Louisiana. Sometimes, one or more people die in a crash. Other times, someone is severely injured. Over the last five years, there has been a ten percent increase in the number of crashes with serious injuries and nearly a six percent increase in fatal crashes when looking at the number of crashes per each 100,000 people in the state population. That means that your risk of getting seriously injured or even dying in a motor vehicle accident is higher than it used to be. That doesn't mean you should avoid driving.

Take care of your finances before filing for divorce

As simple as it may seem, there are many more things that you should do to ensure that you get the outcome you desire. Besides negotiating with your former partner over your marital assets and child custody, you also need to separate your finances.
