Once a claimant receives compensation for their claim, whether through a court award or through a settlement, they can no longer make claims for those particular injuries or that accident. They cannot file another lawsuit against the same defendant for the same injury. This is why it's so important for claimants to make sure all components of the accident and their injuries are considered when making an initial claim.
