If you were injured in a car accident, you are likely facing extensive medical bills, lost wages, along with physical and mental anguish. If your injuries were caused due to another person’s negligence, you are entitled to seek compensation to recover past and future expenses related to the accident. However, one of the questions that most people have before filing a car accident claim is whether they will need to go to court.
Going to Court After Filing a Car Accident Claim
It is important to note that every car accident lawsuit is different. The first steps of a car accident claim will be to gather evidence for your case and calculate past and future expenses. An experienced attorney can help you complete those steps.
Once your attorney has that information, they can meet with the party responsible to achieve a settlement. This is when the responsible party’s insurance agrees to pay or “settle” for what your attorney believes your case is worth. If the insurance and your attorney can’t reach an agreement, the case will go to court. The court will then decide what the compensation amount should be based on the evidence presented.
