The claims process can be incredibly stressful, especially when the insurance company is fighting against your claim. One of the many questions that injury victims have is whether or not their claim will end up going to court.

Many times, a personal injury claim can be resolved without going to trial. However, there are certain cases that will require your personal injury claim to go to court.

TAKING THE SETTLEMENT OFFER

When you are injured due to another person’s negligence, you should not have to pay a penny for out-of-pocket expenses. Your personal injury attorney will be able to calculate your total damages related to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional damages
  • Ongoing future medical care

The insurance company will offer you the lowest amount possible that they think you will accept. However, if they refuse to offer you a full and fair settlement offer, you may have to rely on your personal injury attorney to take your case all the way to trial.

GOING TO CLAIMS COURT

An experienced trial attorney will work as your legal advocate both in and out of court. They will be able to gather all the necessary pieces of information to prove liability and show the entire extent of your damages.

Even simply preparing your case for trial can scare the insurance company into offering you a larger settlement offer, one that covers all your losses. While this process can take longer than settling, it may be necessary in order to ensure you receive the compensation you need to recover.

At Huffman & Huffman, our attorneys are here to ensure that you don’t accept a lowball settlement offer from the insurance company. We are a family-owned law firm, and treat each of our clients like family members because they deserve nothing less.
