Do I have to go to trial?

If you have a personal injury case, you do not have to go to trial. Many cases never make it to the trial stage. There are many elements to a personal injury case and many cases can be settled in the pre-suit stage, after we negotiate a potential settlement on your behalf with the insurance company. Insurance companies will come forward with settlement options that you can accept or reject. In some cases the insurance company will make multiple offers until one is accepted during the pre-trial stage.

If a settlement cannot be reached during pre-trial stage, you may have the option of mediation or arbitration as a form of alternative dispute resolution. Here you meet with a third party mediator who will work with us and the parties at fault to come to a settlement. If you reject the settlement options presented during pre-trial or mediation then your case will likely move forward to trial.
