Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident?

Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident?

If you have recently been injured in an auto wreck, you may need to file a personal injury claim against the person who caused your crash to get the compensation you need to recover. If you’re like many Houston car accident victims, you’d like to avoid having to appear in court during this process.

That’s to be expected; few people enjoy going to court for a drawn-out legal battle. The good news is that you probably won’t need to go to court for your injury claim after your car wreck.

But if it becomes necessary, the attorneys at Denena Points, PC won’t hesitate to take your claim to court to make sure you get what you’re owed.

The Other Side Will Probably Settle

A demand letter from a competent lawyer can go a long way toward securing you the type of settlement that covers all of your car accident-related financial costs, as well as the losses related to your pain, suffering, and inconvenience.

Often, the lawyers and insurance company for the other driver will opt to settle your claim outside of court because the damages awarded in court are sometimes higher than those offered in a settlement.

However, some insurers will attempt to offer lowball settlements that don’t cover all of the damages related to your car accident. When you need compensation, that’s unacceptable.

When Going to Court Is Necessary

We understand that the idea of appearing in court after a car accident has injured you is likely one of the last things you want to do.

While the vast majority of these types of cases successfully settle out of court, we at Denena Points, PC are more than prepared to go to trial if the other side fails to make you a fair offer.

Sometimes, going to court is the only way for you to receive fair compensation. But rest assured that your lawyer will do everything in his or her power to make sure the process is as painless as possible.
