Will I Need to Go to Court for My Personal Injury Claim?
There is a lot to worry about after suffering a personal injury in an accident. You are trying to heal but still need to make sure that your family is protected against the costs of someone else’s mistake. Just the thought of going to court to get the compensation you need can be daunting, but doing so may actually not be necessary.
To find out how likely court will be for your case, you can discuss your situation for free with a Houston personal injury lawyer from Denena Points, PC. We will explain all of the options available to you and help you decide which is best for you and your unique situation.
Negotiations and Settlements
Most of the time, we will not have to go to trial. The vast majority of cases settle out of court through negotiations. We just have to file suit to preserve your right to sue if a fair settlement cannot be reached.
Filing also often motivates the at-fault parties to negotiate in earnest, as they will be interested in avoiding court, as well. A fair and full settlement to compensate you for your losses, damages, and other costs is always our main goal. We will collect evidence and testimony from witnesses to help prove your case and prevent any charge of liability on your part.
Your personal injury lawyer needs to be able to build a solid case that he can lay out before the insurance company and their attorneys during negotiations. It needs to be strong enough to scare them into settling, which will allow you to avoid the ordeal of a trial. You will need to contact us quickly so that we can get to the scene of the injury and collect fresh evidence for your case.
Going to Court
Sometimes the insurance company simply won’t take a claim seriously or will try to place blame on you—all to avoid paying the money you are owed. If they are still low-balling your offer after several rounds of negotiation, we will take the case to court and represent you throughout the process.
Filing legal documents and handling court procedures will be our responsibility, allowing you to heal rather than stress over the procedures. We want you to heal knowing that we are fighting for your comfortable, debt-free future.
