How do I deal with an offer to settle my case?

At key points in your case, your solicitor may advise you that an offer of settlement should be made to your opponent. This may be a 'global figure' for your whole claim, or it may be an offer on just one or more of the arguments in the case, for example, on the question of how the responsibility for the accident is to be apportioned, or how much your compensation for the injury itself should be.
