Do I have to go to court? | Virginia personal injury lawyer

Do I have to go to court?

No you don’t have to go to court. The decision on whether to go to court or not is always yours. Sometimes however it is important that you file suit in your case because the insurance company is being unreasonable in the amount of money that they are offering.

If you have a serious injury and the insurance company is not offering serious money then our advice to you would be to file suit so that you can get the serious money that your case deserves.

Often times insurance companies offer settlements before you need to go to court but more often than not their strategy is to offer you less than what you can get through trial.

Keep in mind that insurance companies and their attorneys know exactly how much your claim is worth, and they are in a much more powerful position to negotiate with the other party than you are. Their job is to resolve the potential “liability” by paying as little as possible to you. Many valuable rights were lost because the injured person believed what he or she was told by the insurance company.

Some personal injury attorneys just try to settle your case without ever trying your case. At O’Bryan Law we are committed to obtaining your fair compensation, and if the insurance company refuses to pay the acceptable amount, then we proceed in court. We know how much you are entitled to and we ensure that your injuries and losses are fairly compensated for.

    I know that in most cases you do not go to court, but
    every situation is different and you never know what the outcome is going to be, but the injured should always consult with an attorney when they or their familes are the victims.
