Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston talks about whether you can settle your medical malpractice case right before trial.
You are getting ready to walk into the courtroom to have a trial on your Maryland medical malpractice case and the defense attorney says he wants to meet with your attorney. After a quick meeting in one of the meeting rooms outside of the courtroom your attorney comes back to you and says the defense has increased their offer to you. If you think it is a fair offer can you accept it right then and there?
The simple answer is why yes, you can accept the offer. Contrary to what some people think, due to a lot of what is shown on TV, you can accept an offer to settle your medical malpractice claim before trial. As a matter of fact, even if during trial the defense makes a good offer to settle your case, you can accept it then too.
The purpose of this video today is to help clear up some confusion as to when you can settle your case. Some people think that once you are ready for trial, and the defense offers a good settlement offer, you cannot take it. So now you know.
