If you have been injured in a car accident, you may have spoken with accident injury attorneys to help you decide on the best course of action for your particular situation. Even so, however, it is important to understand your options. For example, it may be better to settle the claim or bring the matter to court.
But how do you know which path you should take? Your lawyer should be able to help guide you, but you can also watch this video to gain a basic understanding of your options first.
The short answer when it comes to whether you should settle or go to court is, “It depends.” As the lawyer in the video explains, there are many different factors involved in different cases, and each factor will affect which path might be better than the other. The video will break down some of these factors so you can decide which ones apply to your situation. These will come down to things like how much insurance coverage you or the other driver have and how strong the case is. Remember, although this video can give you some preliminary information that will be helpful, always talk with your lawyer.
