HOW OFTEN ARE PERSONAL INJURY CASES SETTLED ?

Personal injury cases, as with any legal matter can be resolved in one of two ways, either by settlement or by a trial.  Approximately 85 percent of personal injury cases can be resolved by settlement with the insurance company.  It is necessary to file a lawsuit in approximately 15 percent of all personal injury cases.  The reason that some cases do not settle is due to a dispute about liability, in those cases, the focus of the trial will be on whether the other driver is at fault.  In some cases there is a dispute about the amount of damages and in those cases the focus of the trial may be limited to the issue of damages.
