Car accidents can be devastating, but even more overwhelming once authorities and insurance companies become involved. People struggle with the thought of whether they may be obligated to go to court after a car accident.
Whether or not you go to court following an accident will depend on whether you receive a court summons or decide to sue the other driver for your injuries or damages.
Although you were not at fault, if the other driver sues you after a car accident, you may receive a court summons that requires you to appear in court. Therefore, it is in your best interest to consult with a car accident attorney after an accident to help with the legal process.
If you were not at fault for the accident, suing could be an option for you in recovering compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.
Negotiations Prior to Court
Filing a lawsuit does not necessarily mean you will end up in court. In fact, filing a lawsuit may cause the liable party to negotiate and for a reasonable settlement.
When to Go to Court
You ultimately go to court when the liable party or insurance company is not willing to make a fair settlement or is unwilling to compensate at all.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced car accident attorney by your side. A qualified and experienced car accident attorney will help you deal with the insurance companies and secure compensation from the responsible parties.
