A majority of personal injury cases do not go to trial. Many legal teams reach a settlement with the other side before their case goes to trial. However, catastrophic injury lawsuits are more likely to go to trial than lawsuits for non-catastrophic injuries.
If both sides do not reach an agreement during negotiation and mediation, they will opt to go to trial. Talk to your lawyer about whether or not your case should go to trial. Your legal team should determine the method that will maximize your compensation, whether it’s through a settlement or through a trial.
