Can a Personal Injury Case Ever Be Reopened?

Published on Aug 6, 2019 at 3:48 pm in Personal Injury.

In most situations, a personal injury case cannot be reopened once a settlement has been reached. If the personal injury case went to trial, however, the way the case was closed determines whether or not it can be reopened. If a judge closes a case without prejudice, it can be reopened. But most personal injury cases do not go to trial. The majority are settled outside of court through negotiations. Understanding how settlements work will affect your ability to reopen a case.

Other names for this document include Conditional and Unconditional Waiver Form, General Waiver, Legal Release, Waiver of Liability Agreement, and Liability Waiver Form.
