Basics of Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits
In most cases, the insurance of the person responsible for your injury will the party being sued. Most individuals and businesses do not have the kind of money to pay you the large sum you deserve to cover your bills and potential loss of income, and winning the case does you no good if you do not actually collect money.
Because insurance companies are the primary entities being sued, most of these cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies do not want to go before a judge and a jury when they know you have a strong case against them. Going to court can be bad for business and end up costing the company extra money for legal expenses.
Because of the uncertainty of what can actually happen in a court case, it is often advisable to settle out of court. Most insurance companies base their settlement offers on what a jury would be likely to award you. Plus, a settlement allows you to collect the money you need to pay your bills right away, while a court case can take months or even years to settle and award you your money. Always speak with your attorney before deciding on a settlement deal. They can help you determine the best course of action.
