What is a statute of limitations?
A statute of limitations is a time limit which is affixed to a particular type of case. Statutes of limitations govern when a person can file a lawsuit regarding an injury. Once the statute of limitations expires, the injured individual can no longer file his or her lawsuit. You will want to talk with an attorney about your specific injuries if you are interested in determining a statute of limitations.
What is the difference between a settlement and a verdict?
A settlement is an agreement on a certain amount of damages that is achieved by both parties. Essentially, a settlement involves the defendant and the plaintiff coming to an agreement on how much money is appropriate in a case. Insurance companies can also help clients to achieve a satisfactory settlement. Verdicts involve a court ruling where the plaintiff petitions against the defendant in the courtroom and a judge decides the amount that will be paid.
