Do I Have to Go to Court for a Chicago Personal Injury Claim?

Many injury victims whose condition was caused by someone else’s negligent actions know that the at-fault party should be responsible for compensating them. But, these victims can often feel overwhelmed by the thought of going to court.

Thankfully, you may be able to avoid going to court altogether when you enlist the help of a qualified Chicago personal injury lawyer.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

The best chance you have of keeping your case out of court is for your attorney to successfully negotiate with the insurance company. In most cases, there will be an insurer involved, whether that be health, auto, or property, to name a few.

The goal is to get the insurance company to see reason and provide you with a settlement that is both fair and reasonable. However, insurers are known for prioritizing their interests above your own, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they initially refuse to meet our demands.

The Benefit of Going to Court

In the event that the insurance adjuster refuses to settle for the amount you deserve, we will need to bring your case before a judge and possibly a jury. Although it can seem overwhelming at first, there are many benefits to bringing your claim to court. The most important advantage being that the judge and jury will be impartial—the insurance company is not.

The judge presiding over your case will be able to see the truth of the accident that caused your injuries. Your lawyer will provide proof that negligence is at the center of the incident. In either case, your attorney will only advise what will yield the best possible outcome for your claim.
