Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident?
If you were recently involved in an auto collision, you’re likely going to have many questions and concerns. If you’re like most people, you’d probably like to avoid going to court if at all possible. But don’t you have to go to court for a car accident if you want compensation?
Unfortunately, the answer isn’t always clear. In some cases, you may be able to avoid a day in court. In others, it will be unavoidable if you want fair compensation.
Our team at Haffner Law wants to ease your mind as much as possible during this difficult time. To ensure you are well-prepared for any number of outcomes following your car crash, we’ve highlighted a few contributing factors that may or may not lead to time in court.
If You’re Seeking Compensation
Most often, car accident injury claims are settled outside of the court system. However, in some cases, you and the other driver (or his or her insurance company) may be unable to agree on a fair settlement amount.
In these instances, your case will need to go to court for a judge to decide whether you deserve the compensation you’re seeking. While you won’t be forced to bring your claim to court, it might be the only way to win the compensation you deserve. A qualified car accident lawyer will be respectful of your wish to avoid court and work tirelessly to settle your claim favorably.
