What if I have to go to court for a rear-end accident case?

If you’ve been rear ended and the insurance company denies your claim or refuses to offer a fair settlement, you may have to take your case to trial. While this may seem intimidating, having an experienced personal injury attorney by your side can make all the difference. Here’s what you should know if you have to go to court for a rear-end accident case:

  1. In civil proceedings, the process of going to trial can be lengthy and complicated. It’s important to have an attorney who can guide you through every step of the process and make sure that your rights are protected.
  1. Filing a lawsuit doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to go to trial. In many cases, a settlement can still be reached even after a lawsuit has been filed.
  1. If your case does go to trial, your attorney will present evidence and arguments to a judge or jury to show that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.  In some instances, your attorney will have to prove the other driver is liable or partially liable for the crash. In other instances, liability may already be established.
  1. Prior to going to trial, the attorney will be responsible for negotiating with the other side and trying to reach a settlement that is in your best interest.
  1. In a trial, the outcome of your case can depend on a variety of factors, including the strength of your evidence, the credibility of witnesses, and the judge or jury’s interpretation of events.
  1. It’s important to remember that going to trial can be emotionally draining and stressful. Having an attorney who can handle the legal aspects of your case and advocate for you can help alleviate some of the stress.
