Will my personal injury accident case have to go to court or trial?
No, more than 90% of all personal injury claims settle out of court. Chances are you will not have to go to trial and testify in court in front of a jury. However, it is essential that your injury claim be investigated, handled, and prepared as if it were going to court. An insurance company offer will be based directly upon what its claims committees and lawyers believe a jury would do in the event of a trial of the case. If there are holes and other weaknesses in your personal injury case, the insurance company will never make a fair offer. Moreover, it is essential that your claim be worked up properly from the outset, as you cannot turn back the clock on many of the common missteps that are often made during the pendency of your claim before you have reached maximum medical improvement and your claim is ready to be submitted. Many mistakes are irreparable. In other words, a minimized or destroyed personal injury claim often cannot be resurrected. Unfortunately, many injury victims are lulled into a false sense of security and learn this the hard way. Get experienced professional advice immediately and you can avoid being one of them.
