Can I sue again if I’m unhappy with my settlement or court award?
No. Once a compensation claim is settled, dismissed, or a claimant is awarded, the claim is considered closed. A claimant isn’t allowed to sue the same defendant again for the same injury and expect to receive a new compensation amount. This permanence is why it’s so important for a claimant to think clearly and carefully about who they want representing their case and advising them through the legal process.
