Do personal injury cases go to trial? If you are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the at fault party, your personal injury case may go to trial. Personal injury cases usually involve either a formal lawsuit or an informal settlement. In the former, the plaintiff files a lawsuit against the other party for compensation.
If you are unsure about when to hire a personal injury lawyer, hire one as soon as possible after you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. A personal injury lawyer can assist you in seeking compensation for your injuries and can also help protect your best interests against insurance companies who may try to avoid paying fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
“What does a personal injury lawyer do?” is a question you may ask yourself when you’re wondering whether seeking legal representation is in your best interests. From gathering evidence and valuing your claim to creating a suitable legal strategy for pursuing maximum compensation and representing you in court, a personal injury lawyer’s services help get the best possible outcome for your claim.
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

Personal Injury: Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Posted By:

Almost all personal injury cases are settled out of court and before trial begins, some are settled after the start of a trial but before its conclusion. It is always better and faster to avoid a  trial but not always the best course to recovering the most in damages for a client.
