Do I Have to Go to Court for My Personal Injury Case?

If you have been injured in Illinois because of somebody else’s negligent actions, you may be considering pursuing the responsible party for financial damages. However, you might be reluctant to do so because you wonder, “Do I have to go to court for my personal injury case?”

The short answer is that you may end up in the courtroom, though typically you will not. The reality is that most personal injury cases do not go to trial. Nevertheless, it is crucial that you retain a personal injury attorney with excellent trial skills so that you are prepared if you do have to go to court.

Far too often, attorneys are reluctant to see the inside of a courtroom, and insurance companies and defense attorneys know this. As a result, they may settle personal injury cases for significantly less than they would have with the possibility of a trial to incentivize them.
