Will my Personal Injury Case go to Trial?
The majority of personal injury claims are settled before they are due to be taken to trial. When there is a dispute over the facts or a contentious legal issue, then the case is more likely to proceed to trial. However, the more concisely you construct your case with strong evidence, the more likely you and the opposing party will be able to agree on a reasonable settlement. If you didn’t have a personal injury lawyer dedicated to your case up until that point, then you will certainly need one to take on your case if it is sent to trial. The trial may be avoided altogether if a personal injury lawyer with niche experience in your specific injury has already taken on the case before it reaches this point. Individual claimants are more likely to make mistakes regarding small technicalities in procedures that will give them a disadvantage in the process along with prolonging it all together.
