Q: My Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis attorney says that he is actively negotiating a settlement in my case. What does this mean and what is expected of me?
A:It can be exciting to hear that your Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis lawyer is working to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. What your lawyer means by “actively negotiating” is specific to your individual case. However, it likely means that your lawyer is talking to the defense and that the parties are trying to work out an agreement. It is difficult to say how long the settlement negotiations will take because it is highly dependent on the facts of your case, how willing the defendant is to settle and the aggressiveness of your lawyer.
You can help your Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis attorney settle your case in two important ways. First, you can make sure that your lawyer has all of the relevant information pertaining to your case. Second, you can be available to respond to any settlement offers that are made. While your Atlanta cancer lawyer will certainly advise you as to whether or not you should take the proposed settlement, the decision is ultimately yours.
