While Kryder Law’s personal injury attorneys are ready to work with you from trial through verdict, many personal injury cases are settled out of court. In fact, about 90% of personal injury cases never see a courtroom.
When a plaintiff and defendant settle out of court, both parties need lawyers to help them negotiate an agreeable settlement.
Often out-of-court settlements begin with an offer from the defendant–the person accused of wrongdoing–to the plaintiff. The defendant might do this for a number of reasons, including being unable to prove his or her innocence or to avoid a costly court battle.
Settling out of court can be beneficial to both plaintiffs and defendants. Plaintiffs often receive compensation greater than what they would receive if they went to trial and defendants stand a chance of protecting their reputations.
If you are interested in settling a personal injury suit out of court, it’s important to have a good understanding of the risks and benefits of doing so. For instance, in addition to concerns about a just compensation package, will you feel justice has been served if you settle without a trial? Our personal injury lawyers will make sure you understand your rights and options fully so that you can make a decision that’s right for you and your loved ones.
