Will my case have to go to trial or will it be settled out of court?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions by clients and one of the most difficult to answer. Most cases settle prior to a trial. However, we believe that the only way to obtain the maximum recovery available is to prepare the case for trial and be ready, willing and able to proceed to trial if the settlement offer is not reasonable. The psychology applied to insurance companies and litigation is no different than what you see on the playground with the neighborhood bully – once he knows that you aren’t scared and won’t back down, he treats you differently and picks on someone else. We won’t be bullied into a settlement that isn’t fair to our client because we are willing to go to trial when it is necessary.
