Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

The field of personal injury covers a wide variety of accidents and injuries. Many of the incidents that occur in personal injury seriously affect the life of the victim. Oftentimes, victims are left wondering how they will pay for medical bills, replace damaged property, or make up for lost wages. With the help of a skilled Monroe personal injury lawyer, it may be possible to recover compensation for those needs.

We provide legal representation for the following injury cases:

Will I Have to Go to Court?

We all lead busy lives and many of us often balk at the thought of having to go to court and endure a personal injury trial. However, you do not necessarily have to go through the drama of a trial in order to obtain compensation for your injuries. It is estimated that only about 4-5% of personal injury cases actually go to trial; the remainder are normally settled outside of court.

Why Do So Many Cases Settle Out of Court?

The main reason why most cases end up settling out of court is for monetary reasons. Insurance companies understand that they may have to pay out claims and are prepared to do so. Going through a trial, however, is vastly more expensive than simply negotiating a settlement offer. Moreover, during a trial, the insurance company has no control over the outcome, which makes it a risky proposition.

That said, in rare cases, or when catastrophic injuries are involved, the insurance company might rather go through a trial if a lot of money is at stake and they are unwilling to be reasonable during negotiations.

Who Benefits From Settling?

Settling a personal injury lawsuit and foregoing a trial is beneficial for both the plaintiff and the defendant. Neither party knows what the outcome will be if they go to court, which is a big risk people often do not want to take. With a skilled attorney on your side who knows how to negotiate, you will be able to secure maximum compensation without having to go through a trial.

For plaintiffs, settling out of court is particularly beneficial since it allows them to collect compensation sooner, so they can pay for the costs associated with their injuries and lessen the financial burden.

Benefits of Going to Court

If the insurance company is being unreasonable and will not settle for an amount that is fair, one of the best courses of actions a plaintiff can take is to begin court filings to get their attention. Once the insurance company sees the ball rolling on court proceedings, they will think twice about their actions and will be more likely to settle. If they still refuse to settle, however, it is important to have an attorney who is just as adept inside of the courtroom as they are outside.
