    From slip and fall cases to car accidents -- and everything in between -- almost all injury claims settle well before a court-based trial becomes necessary. And a large number of cases settle before a personal injury lawsuit is even filed. This section explains how each step works in a typical settlement. How many personal injury cases go to court? Only a very small proportion of personal injury claims ever go to trial. Even when court proceedings begin in a claim, it does not mean that the case will automatically go to a court hearing. By Truth Legal’s estimates, only about 1% of our personal injury cases are concluded with a trial.

    In the rare event that a personal injury lawsuit makes it all the way to trial, a damages award may be ordered by a judge or jury. Let's look at the different kinds of damages in personal injury cases and how a damages award can be affected by the plaintiff's action (or inaction). Compensatory Damages in Personal Injury Cases.   This book was written for individuals who are thinking of handling their own personal injury case. However, it will also be helpful to those who have hired a lawyer and want to understand some of the issues in a personal injury claim.

      As a retired lawyer who handled many personal injury cases (both as a defense lawyer and for plaintiffs), an Arbitrator and Mediator who has handled many, many more, some things become ever more obvious as the years pass. Resolving most personal injury cases before a lawsuit is filed (or at least before the defense files an answer) accomplishes most of the objectives of the parties more.   Most injury claims settle out of court, but for specialized cases, choose an attorney who can advance the funds needed to prepare for trial if needed. Personal injury attorneys usually don’t charge for the initial consultation and will represent clients like you on a contingency fee basis, meaning their fees won’t get paid until they settle.
