Not every car accident case goes to court. In fact, many cases are settled without anyone ever stepping foot in the courtroom when you and the defendant (or defendant’s insurer) come to a deal. An auto accident attorney can help you negotiate such a deal, and having a lawyer may make it easier to get a fair outcome because the insurance company will understand how seriously you take your rights.

However, if you are not able to negotiate a fair deal with the insurer and if you aren’t happy with the settlement amount, then you’ll need to go to court to convince the jury that the defendant’s insurance company needs to pay what your case is worth. An attorney can advise you on when it makes sense to settle and can also help to prove your case in court if necessary to get a fair outcome.

Whether you go to court or not, having an attorney with experience is key. You need a lawyer with negotiation experience to get the fairest settlement offer, and with courtroom experience in case your claim ends up in court.
