Will My Florida Personal Injury Claim Go to Court?

Monday, March 28th, 2022

At MLG Injury, our Florida personal injury attorneys know that when our clients are injured by another person, party, or entity’s negligence, they are often unsure of what to expect from the legal process.

Chances are, most people have never pursued a legal claim against a negligent driver, business owner, or event organizer, which makes the process seem daunting.

That is where we come in.

The percentage of personal injury cases that go to trial in the U.S. is between 4% – 5%, according to the most recently available numbers from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics.

That means 95% – 96% of cases are settled through pre-trial negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company.

There are multiple benefits to accepting a negotiated financial settlement after a personal injury accident, no matter when the incident occurred.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Florida will outline each of your legal options, so you can make informed decisions about the direction of your case.

What is an Out of Court Personal Injury Settlement?

A personal injury settlement is one that is determined during closed-door negotiations with the liable party’s insurance company, where the insurer avoids a trial by agreeing to a compensation amount.

Our experienced Florida personal injury attorneys will explain each of our client’s legal rights and options to pursue the best outcome for their unique case, so they can make informed decisions regarding their recovery.

What are the Benefits of a Reaching a Florida Personal Injury Settlement vs. a Trial?

There are multiple benefits to accepting an out-of-court financial settlement after a personal injury occurs in Florida.

They can include:

  • Avoiding increased trial preparation costs that can decrease our client’s settlement amount
  • Reduced stress and anxiety from avoiding a courtroom appearance in front of a jury
  • Maintaining privacy by keeping the details of the case off the public record by settling out of court

Negotiating a financial settlement provides a predictable outcome that works for each of our eligible client’s unique needs, instead of the unpredictable possibilities that come with litigating your claim inside the courtroom.

However, if negotiations break down at any time, or we believe our clients are not getting the justice they deserve, our skilled personal injury attorneys in Florida are prepared to take the case to trial where we will use our litigation experience to pursue the best outcome available for their unique circumstances.
