Should you go to trial for your injury in Michigan?

If you suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident in the Michigan, you may be wondering how to proceed in terms of legal options. An insurance company may urge you to quickly settle your claim, but some cases may end up in court, to assure the injured party gets the just compensation they deserve.

There are several factors that come into play when deciding whether to take your personal injury case to trial. You should inform yourself about the options available to you in your own case.

Insurance companies and settlements

Personal injury cases, due to a variety of factors, such as slip-and-fall injuries, dog bites, and motor vehicle accidents, may either settle out of court or go to trial if the parties do not reach a settlement. Sometimes, insurance companies use tactics to try to achieve a quick settlement so they can avoid going to trial. This is because it is expensive for the insurance companies to go to trial, and they face a greater risk if a judge awards a larger settlement than they were prepared to offer.

Going to trial in personal injury cases

Some accident victims actually ruin their chances of a proper settlement because they do not consult with an attorney. An attorney who handles personal injury cases is best suited to help victims of car crashes and injuries move through the legal proceedings following an injury. This includes dealing with the insurance company, negotiating a settlement and taking the case to trial, if necessary.

The best way to answer the question of whether you should take your case to trial in Michigan is to consult with an attorney who knows how to evaluate the risks and benefits. Your case may benefit best from a negotiated settlement, but if it does need to go to trial, you should choose an attorney who has extensive courtroom litigation experience.
