Q: What is the difference between a settlement and a verdict?
A: A settlement is a voluntary agreement between the injured plaintiff (i.e. you) and, usually, the insurance company for the defendant. The settlement will end the case in return for a lump sum payment of a certain amount of money A verdict is a decision made by a jury. It is usually either “judgment for the plaintiff in the amount of X dollars” or “judgment for the defendant.” Please give us a call at 1-844-44EMBRY to discuss your matter.
