No. You almost always have to sue.

The city has 30 days to make an offer. If not then you can start a law suit. You have 1year and 90 days to sue. In most cases you won't get an offer until the case is ready for trial and that will take several years.

Don't expect any offers at the conclusion of the hearing. Whether there will be any offer at all depends on the type of claim you have, the validity of the liability, the policy of the municipality and whether they are insured or self-insured

The 50 h hearing is a statutory required hearing, for cases involving cases or city agencies. It is a fact finding forum where a city representative asks questions about how the incident occurred and what injuries were sustained, and what treatment you had. No offers usually result from this hearing because it is general too early in the process to make an offer. Your attorney should be able to further explain the legal process that follows.
