Accidents happen everywhere, and unfortunately, every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured due to work accidents, motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and construction accidents in Palm Beach. The State of Florida has laws to protect people who become the victim due to others’ negligence, being personal injury laws and premises liability laws; for example. Below we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of settling your case or taking it to trial.

 

 

What Should I Do After An Accident?

After experiencing an accident of any sort and you have sustained injuries, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer in Palm Beach to advise you of your legal rights. Our lawyers at Advocates USA want to ensure you get the justice deserved and can recover compensation. Your lawyers will:

 

 

 Write a demand letter to the party responsible for the accident and request compensation to cover

 

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any therapy expenses
  • Property damage ie, your vehicle
  • Economic losses

 

On occasion, your claim will be resolved during this period through the negligent party’s insurance adjuster or their lawyer, especially if liability for the accident is clear. 

 

However, often, the claim is disputed or denied because insurance companies do not want to lose money and/or take responsibility.

 

 

  1. Negotiation. Your lawyers will negotiate your compensation and try to settle outside of court. We want to get you a fair payment, and we will not settle for anything less. If the negligent party is not willing to meet our expectations and we have a strong case, we will;
  2. Take the lawsuit to court
  3. Discovery. During this process, evidence will be shared with the other party
  4. Trial

So the real question comes, should you accept the settlement offer, or should you file a lawsuit and take your case to court?

 

This question all comes down to the victim. Our experienced Palm Beach personal injury attorneys can inform the victim if it is a low ball offer or not. Usually, insurance companies offer an amount that is not reasonable because they know the victim is eager to settle. All we can do is advise you and provide you your options, and this decision is up to you. Advocates USA will provide you with all the tools necessary to make your decision.

 

 

Advantages of Settling Outside Of Court?

Below we will outline some of the benefits for the victim if they settle their personal injury claim in Palm Beach outside of court:

 

 

  1. You will likely get paid faster than you would be going through the court
  2. You avoid stress and time consuming events like going to depositions, hearings, trials, etc.
  3. The defense lawyers will not victimize you during trial
  4. If you settle, it is cheaper for the attorney costs
  5. You avoid a jury which can be risky because they are unpredictable

 

Choosing to accept a settlement, you are guaranteed to receive some compensation. Whereas if you go to trial, you may walk away with less or even worse, nothing.

 

What Are The Advantages Of Going To Court For Your Personal Injury Claim In Palm Beach, Fl?

 

Sometimes the only option or your best option is to take your claim to court because the defendant refuses to pay what is reasonable for your injuries or not willing to pay anything. Or you may want to try for the full amount of compensation, and you go to court. Below are some advantages of a court trial:

 

  1. You could be awarded the total amount of compensation
  2. The defendant will need to pay if you won when they weren’t willing to negotiate during the settlement process.
  3. You might be able to get the defendant to pay for the legal fees associated with the trial

 

There are many reasons why people want to file a lawsuit and take their personal injury case to trial. What our accident lawyers tell our clients, the resolution may take months to even years.
