Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident?
After a car accident, you’re likely facing a whirlwind of stress and physical pain. Some days, the thought of even getting out of bed in the morning might be difficult. When you’re at that point, the thought of going to court can be even more daunting that it usually would be.
Many car crash victims are reluctant to go to court, even when it’s the only way to get the compensation they need for a full recovery from their injuries.
The short answer is this: No, you don’t have to go to court, but you might want to.
You Might Want to Go to Court
If you’re trying to avoid going to court, you’re likely going to want a car accident lawyer on your side to fight for an out-of-court settlement. In many cases, insurance companies and negligent parties will be eager to settle because courts often award more compensation than settlements would.
However, you may encounter reluctance from the other party. The insurance company might make you a pathetically low offer that doesn’t even scratch the surface of your damages. You may not be offered a settlement at all.
In these cases, your lawyer will likely advise you that the only way to get what you’re owed is to take the negligent party to court.

Of course, your lawyer is on your side and will do everything within his or her power to make sure you get the compensation you deserve. If you don’t want to go to court, your car accident attorney will fight hard for the full and fair settlement you deserve.
