Who decides a personal injury settlement amount?

The final decision is made by the parties involved in the lawsuit, guided by the legal advice of their attorneys. When an insurance company is involved, then that company is also involved in the decision. In more complex cases, there may be a mediator or settlement conference judge involved in negotiations.
