Question:

Can I still file a personal injury claim if I don’t want to go to court?

Answer:

Going to Court in a Personal Injury Claim We see a lot of clients who tell us upfront that they don’t want to go to court. They don’t want their case to be put before a jury, and they don’t want to have to go before a judge. We handle cases like this all the time, but we have to advise our clients that it can greatly minimize the compensation that they receive in the end if they’re not willing to put the case into a lawsuit and potentially go to trial.

Prior to going to court, insurance companies generally dictate how much money they’re willing to put on a case to resolve it. In situations where we don’t feel like they have put enough compensation on the table, the next step is to file a lawsuit and to litigate the case up through and including a jury trial, if necessary. If you do not wish to do that, we understand, but it greatly limits what the potential outcome could be in those cases.

Cases like this need to be evaluated on an individual basis. We like to take the opportunity to talk our clients through what the case may look like with our without filing a lawsuit. If you have any questions about this in your case, please feel free to give us a call.
