This is a question we often hear from our car accident injury clients. They express to us that they feel nervous about the prospect of going to court, even though the desperately need to obtain the compensation they’re owed by the negligent party who injured them. We understand. If you don’t spend a lot of time there like we do, court can be intimidating. And while you don’t necessarily have to go to court if you file a personal injury claim after a car accident, you very likely will want to if the negligent party or insurance company refuses to negotiate.
