Can a Personal Injury Case Be Reopened?
One commonly asked question about personal injury cases is whether a claim can be reopened after a settlement is reached. Unfortunately, many victims find that their injuries become more severe over time, that they lose more work than expected, or that they otherwise incur costs they didn’t account for in their original personal injury settlement. Sadly, once your personal injury case is closed, it can’t be reopened. Once your case is over and you’ve signed a release form in acceptance of the settlement, you have agreed to release the defendant from any future claims related to the incident.

It’s wise to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as you can, but our experts can help you no matter how far along you are in the process.
