Does The Threat Of Trial Enhance The Likelihood Of A Better SettlementIf you want to win your case and get a fair settlement from the insurance company, it is important to have a strong and convincing argument. You need to be able to show that your case is legitimate and present evidence that supports your claims. If you can do this, then the insurance company will be more likely to give you a fair settlement.

Going to trial can be a long and complicated process, but if you have an experienced attorney by your side, it can increase the chances of getting a fair or better settlement from insurance companies to even simply demonstrate the threat of a potential lawsuit.

The closer you get to trial, the more important your damage model becomes. If parties involved become realistic as the trial date approaches, settlements are more likely to happen. I have had cases that settled the day before trial or the week before trial, but usually, settlements occur at mediation, which is typically close to the trial date.

In Conclusion

You can try to negotiate with the defendant or insurance company at the beginning, or you can wait and develop your case before going to mediation, where you will probably get a better outcome. On the other hand, you can also go to trial and hope that the 12 people on the jury are attentive and understand your side. Whatever your choice may be, it’s crucial to have an attorney on your side who can walk with you through each step of the way.
