    No. They are making an offer to end the civil lawsuit. It may make financial sense to pay some money you do not owe than to continue expensive litigation.

    In some cases, blameless persons (or persons who will not acknowledge fault) will make a settlement offer.

    Obviously YES!

    No, they are not admitting blame. They are trying to end the proceedings by making an offer.

    No. Defendants very typically offer nuisance value settlements, or make settlements without any admission of liability.

    Evidence of settlement negotiations is never admissible at trial because it would discourage the parties from discussing settlement.l

    The average litigation I handle will cost my client $30,000-$50,000 in legal fees. Add more for experts. It makes financial sense to settle a case if it can be done for the same or lesser amount of what the defendant would spend in legal fees and experts, and a settlement guarantees the outcome. No risk of a bad decision by the judge. No appeals. Considering the general rule in this country is that attorneys’ fees are not recoverable, settling makes alot of sense.
