Any case has the potential to go to trial in court. Whether or not your personal injury case will go to trial depends on a variety of factors. While some cases result in trial, most cases end in a settlement between the injured person and the insurance company for the at-fault party. However, if a settlement can’t be reached and the parties are unable to agree on compensation for the injuries and damages, the case will proceed to litigation.
It’s important to note that not all personal injury cases that are litigated end up going to trial. Many cases are resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation or arbitration. These can be less time-consuming and expensive than a trial, but your attorney will work with you to assess the best course of action based on the specifics of your case and your desired outcome.
It’s beneficial to have an experienced lawyer on your case to help you navigate the complex legal process of personal injury claims and maximize your settlement amount. When you consult with a lawyer, you should make certain that your lawyer has litigation experience if a trial becomes necessary.
