Should I accept a settlement offer in my Kentucky product liability case?
I would highly encourage you not to accept a settlement offer that has been proposed to you by a product manufacturer in Kentucky without first seeking the advice of an experienced Kentucky product liability attorney. The biggest problem that you have in accepting an offer is that they're going to ask you to sign a release which would do away with all of your claims. One of the things that we see in almost all releases is that the release has what we call indemnity language. That indemnity language would require you to reimburse your healthcare provider or your insurance provider that is has paid all of your medical bills. Sometimes the medical bills exceed the amount of your settlement, thus putting yourself in a whole.
