Will my personal injury case have to go to court to settle?

Most of the time, a personal injury claim can be resolved without the need to go to court for a trial. If the insurance company denies your claim, or refuses to offer you a fair settlement, you may need to file suit.

A personal injury lawsuit is best conducted with the help of a personal injury attorney.  Even in the early stages, when you file a personal injury claim with your insurance company, you should consult with an attorney to help build your case.  The more familiar your attorney is with your case from the start, the better they can help prepare your case for a personal injury lawsuit.  Additionally, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you avoid costly mistakes. 

When you find it necessary to take your claim to court, your case will be heard by a judge and jury to determine if you are entitled to compensation.  This is often the only option for victims whose insurance companies wrongfully deny their injury claim, or refuse to offer a fair settlement amount to compensate for their damages.

When choosing a South Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer, make sure you ask them about their attitude when it comes to filing a personal injury lawsuit, their trial experience, and the potential need to take your claim to trial.  Be aware that some lawyers refuse to take cases that end up going to trial, and many have never actually been in court before.
