pros and cons with taking a personal injury case to trial? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

If you are the victim, the pros and cons need to be considered against whatever settlement offer the at-fault party’s insurance company has offered. The victim’s personal injury attorney will have evaluated the case and determined what amount of financial compensation the victim deserves. How close the insurance company’s settlement offer is to that amount usually determines whether the case will end up in court.

There are always risks going to trial because there is no way to predict what the jury will decide. There have been many personal injury lawsuits where the jury has awarded the victim more than what they were seeking and lawsuits where the jury has awarded the victim much less or denied their claim completely.

Having an experienced Virginia accident attorney representing you will help ensure you choose the best legal options for your situation.
