Learn Why It is Often Best to Settle Your Personal Injury Case Vs Taking it to Court

How often a personal injury case gets to court is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive at Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas. Rarely, is the answer. In reality, according to certain estimates, only around 5% of personal injury cases end up in court; the rest are either resolved out of court or are dismissed. This is why you want a personal injury lawyer who is skilled both in court and in negotiations. Read on to learn more and then contact us at 909-982-0707 if you require a free legal consultation.

Settlements Frequently Benefit the Insurance Company

Because the insurance company of the party that was at blame does not want to pay for a trial, it is usual for an insurance company to desire to settle. Jurors might be unexpected, and there will be court costs and legal fees. They could have to pay out considerably more than they could ever accept. Because of this, several insurance firms make an effort to resolve issues as soon as feasible.

Settlements Frequently Benefit the Plaintiff

Likewise, accepting a settlement rather than going to court is sometimes the wiser course of action for the plaintiff. Juries and judges can be unexpected once more. When a personal injury lawyer can tenaciously bargain for a fair settlement, it could be worthwhile to accept it. If you go to trial, will you receive more? Maybe, but making a decision in advance allows you to manage the risk and prevent unpleasant surprises.

Accepting a Compromise May Result in Faster Payment

One of the reasons that our clients frequently decide to settle is that it is (in most situations) a far speedier procedure than going to court. There are probably growing expenditures for you. You might be unemployed, unable to pay for required medical treatment, and in need of money immediately. You could be inclined to settle sooner rather than later if this is the case.

Even in this case, we firmly advise you to at the very least seek legal counsel from a personal injury attorney before taking any further action. The insurance provider is adept at convincing consumers that they are on their side. They are not; instead, they are in it to make a profit, which entails disbursing as little money as possible. Your lawyer is skilled at negotiating for the best result.
