Hiring a car accident lawyer does not mean that you are instantly heading to court. We do, however, approach every case as if we may one day need to file a lawsuit and take your case to trial. That said, the initial stages of any car accident claim will not involve a lawsuit or court and will usually involve negotiations between your car accident attorney and the insurance company for the driver responsible for your injuries and damages.
We know that going to court or going through litigation is not a fun experience. If we can achieve a fair result for you by negotiating a settlement with the insurance company, you are benefiting from the years of litigation experience that we have and the cases similar to your own that we did take to court and where we found success. After years of practicing as car accident attorneys, our attorneys know how to present your case to the insurance company in a way that may avoid having to file a lawsuit.
We always caution our clients, however, that a lawsuit may be necessary to achieve the goal of getting you a fair result. if the insurance company refuses to provide you with the compensation that you deserve, you may have no choice but to file a lawsuit and show the insurance company that you mean business.
Each case is unique and will be treated as such. Even our past results in similar cases cannot guarantee similar outcomes. The best way to find an answer to this question is to contact our office and schedule an appointment with one of our attorneys who can help you evaluate your case.
