Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

Most personal injury claims can be successfully settled out of court. In the event you are unable to reach settlement with the insurance company on your own, there are steps you can take to facilitate the resolution of your case. Speak with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney if you need assistance in settling your claim. There are a variety of negotiation tactics and alternative dispute resolution methods that you can try first, before filing a lawsuit.

You may wish to take your claim to court if settlement negotiations have been unsatisfactory. Filing a lawsuit initiates the process of litigation. During litigation, you will be exchanging evidence with the other party in anticipation of trial. Litigation can do wonders to encourage insurance companies to settle, and so very few personal injury cases actually make it to trial. It is difficult to say whether or not any one type of case will go to trial. You should not choose to go to trial on a whim. It is often in the best interests of the injured plaintiff to attempt settlement before trial.

However, there are certain cases where trial may provide the plaintiff the best chance at receiving fair compensation. Even so, trial is always a risk. In trial, a jury will be deciding your damages, or the monetary compensation you will receive in a judgment. Although the nature of the litigation process is such that each side has a chance to present a clear argument and provide evidence that supports his or her argument, the insurance company could continue to extend offers you feel aren’t fair given your losses. This is the point where you may wish to proceed with trial.

Cases that go to trial can vary widely. Cases involving catastrophic injuries, such as severe spinal cord trauma, or death, cases involving a liability dispute, or cases involving defective products sometimes present difficulties that can make trial an effective option. Speak with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney if you have questions or concerns about taking your case to trial. Many times, it is in your best interest to settle before trial. Trial requires time and resources. In the end, you may not be happy with the outcome because a jury will be deciding your damages, making trial high-risk for some cases. Knowing how the trial process works and your rights in trial can help you make an informed decision on whether or not trial is right for your case.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
