Is It Better to Go to Court or Accept a Settlement Offer?
After a serious injury or accident, chances are good you just want it all to go away. You’re ready to get your life back to normal, and you don’t want to spend all your time in court. But that doesn’t mean you want to settle for less compensation. So what can you do?
It can be tough to determine whether it’s better to go to court or accept a settlement offer. Luckily, the lawyers at Kohan & Bablove LLP have the tools and experience to help you choose. Check out the pros and cons below and talk to our team before you make your choice.
Settling with the Insurance Company or At-Fault Party
In some cases, your insurance company or the at-fault party may offer what seems like a fair settlement for the losses you’ve suffered. They’re supposed to take care of your losses after an injury or accident, right?
But they may be unable or unwilling to settle with you for the full settlement you’re owed. Insurers are for-profit businesses, and that means they may place their profits before your recovery. Your personal injury lawyer can help you seek a settlement from these groups that may be thinking about their own interests, not yours.
Taking Your Claim to Court
When you’re hurt in an Orange County accident, you need compensation that covers all your damages. It’s not fair to you to suffer a brain injury, broken bone, or other devastating injuries in an accident you didn’t cause, only to pay out of pocket for your recovery.
Because of this, you may need to take your claim to court if the at-fault party doesn’t cooperate. If they fail to settle fairly, you can take your claim to court. Keep in mind, though, that it can take time to settle your lawsuit in court, and it can affect you over time to go without compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
