Not if the insurance company agrees to pay what we agree your case is worth and you wish to settle for that amount. In some cases, however, getting a fair recovery will likely require going to trial. Most of the attorneys will accept so-called “soft tissue” injury cases, for example, they anticipate from the outset that insurers will refuse to accept responsibility for paying fair compensation. A skilled attorney will prepare all of their “minor impact” collision accident cases as if they are going to court.
In other cases, the severity of an injury may be more obvious to insurers, and they may be more willing to reach an acceptable settlement. The attorney you want to hire should never count on such an outcome, and they should always prepare the cases for trial. The preparation allows negotiating from a stronger position, helping you get the full amount of compensation that your injuries deserve.
