Will I need to go to court?
In many cases, a settlement satisfactory to all parties involved in a dispute can be reached without needing to go to trial. Typically, all parties involved would rather avoid the time, expense, and emotional distress a trial can bring. Those times when a plaintiff has a strong case, it’s quite common that inruance companies or defendants under the advice of their legal council will try to make some fair conciliatory offer so that a trial can be avoided.
Of course, having a qualified attorney negotiating on your behalf is going to greatly increase your chances of having a fair settlement offered to you during this time before a trial. At times, though, an agreement cannot be reached without a courtroom proceeding.
