Will I Need to Go to Court if I File a Mokena Personal Injury Case?

Approximately 5 percent of personal injury cases go to trial. So, chances are you will not need to go to court because, far more often than not, insurance companies tend to want to settle these cases rather than risk a jury handing down a large award at trial. In a personal injury settlement, you agree to accept a certain amount of money, usually from an insurance company, in exchange for agreeing not to pursue your case.

How Much Should I Expect From a Personal Injury Settlement?

Personal injury cases vary widely in terms of damages, and it is nearly impossible to provide an accurate estimate of what a settlement would be without a detailed review of the case. However, as a general rule, an insurance company will consider the following factors when coming up with a settlement figure:

  • The medical expenses you have already incurred
  • The likely need for medical care in the future
  • Whether you missed work or can no longer work because of your injuries
  • Whether you shared responsibility for the accident
  • Whether you experienced significant trauma, scarring, disfigurement, pain, or suffering as a result of the accident

At Fotopoulos Law Office, we take the time to identify the full extent of your damages from the very beginning of your case. That way, when the insurance company comes back with a settlement figure, you know what will be a good offer and what you should accept.
