Question:

Will my car accident case go to trial?

Answer:

I had a client ask me recently, “How do I know if my car accident case is actually going to go to trial, or is there a way that we can avoid trial?” Avoiding Trial for a Car Accident Claim I told him, first of all, that cases usually go to trial if the insurance company is not doing the right thing, which is evaluating the case fairly and offering what should be offered. In those circumstances, sometimes we have to try cases. Sometimes we have to go to trial and, if the insurance company won’t do what’s right, we have a jury do what’s right for our client.

Not many cases do go to trial, though, and the way that we avoid cases being tried is by being prepared. We prepare our clients for any testimony they’re going to give. We’re thorough with our depositions. We’re thorough with the discovery that we conduct. We have medical providers who are prepared and ready to go. We have experts, if necessary, who are prepared and ready to go so that by the time we do get to a trial, the insurance company can see we’re ready. If they’re not going to do the right thing, we’re going to have a jury do it for us.
