Sometimes it is better to settle your case than to take it to court. Your attorney will have more direct control of your case when settling out of court and you will earn what you deserve as opposed to what a judge and jury decide. You simply do not know how the jury will react to your case. If you are in this situation and you were injured badly, be sure to get the amount of money you need.
According to The New York Times, a recent study* showed in 61% of cases taken to trial, plaintiffs received less money than was originally offered. Obviously there are thousands of factors that went into the decision making of these cases, but why risk having your case in the hands of strangers. Trust in an attorney and see your outcome improve dramatically.
For auto accidents, the majority of cases (80% to 92%) settle out of court and for good reason. With an attorney at your side you will have better success at settling your case in your favor and most importantly, on your time.
