Do I Want My Case to Go To Trial?

Do I Want My Case to Go To Trial?

When you’re involved in a personal injury or worker’s compensation lawsuit, you want the biggest payout possible to compensate for your injuries. But does that mean you want your case to go to trial?

Keep in mind that more than 90 percent of personal injury cases are settled before going to trial, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Do I Want My Workers Compensation Case To Go To Trial?

A trial can pose a significant risk or a big reward when you sue for workers’ compensation. A jury might find the defendant not guilty in creating circumstances that contributed to your injury, which would mean you would not receive any financial damages.

However, if the jury ruled in your favor, you have the potential of winning a more considerable sum of money.

Trials can be time-consuming, expensive, and pose the most risk for all parties involved. These reasons motivate insurance adjusters — as well as the lawyers helping injured people—to reach a personal injury settlement deal.

As the plaintiff, you are guaranteeing yourself some financial damages by settling.

How Much Money Will I Win If My Injury Case Goes To Trial?

If you do not reach a settlement with the defendant and your injury case goes to trial, you have the risk of winning no money at all to compensate for your injury.

There may be a high reward if a jury or judge rules in your favor, but a settlement guarantees a payout.

The severity of your injuries, your pain and suffering, and loss of income, paired with the defendant’s insurance policy, will affect the total amount of your payout.

Hiring a lawyer is the best way to guarantee a payout, according to Nolo.com. Of those who obtained legal representation, 91 percent received compensation for their injuries, whereas only 51 percent without representation did.

    Los abogados de Hyland & Padilla me ayudaron a recuperarme de mi accidente en 2017. Me caí al trabajo, me rompí la pierna izquierda y no pude trabajar. Andrea me ayudó con los tribunales y consiguió dinero para mi lesión. Ahora no tengo que elegir entre pagar las facturas y recuperarme de una pierna fracturada.
