Can My Attorney Settle My Massachusetts Personal Injury Case Without My Consent?

No.  It is you, the client who decides whether or not to settle your case.  Your attorney of course is obligated to counsel you as to whether or not a particular settlement is worth taking.  Chances are your attorney wants to get you the best settlement possible.  Therefore, you should listen and weigh your attorney’s advice on whether to settle the case.  Your attorney is ethically obligated to inform you of all reasonable settlement offers made on your case. 

Deciding whether to accept a settlement or go to trial is a tough decision.  Listen to your attorney’s advice, go with your gut, and make a decision that you feel is right.
