Are Personal Injury Lawyers In Court All The Time?

Have you ever wondered if all personal injury lawyers go to court every day? Surprisingly, not many cases get to seek trial. Contact Malloy Law Offices, LLC today!

Do All Personal Injury Lawyers Go To Trial Regularly?

TV lawyers always seem to be in court or working on a case to be filed in court. On the contrary, lawyers actually aren’t in court as often as they are in movies or shows. Which makes this statement fiction. Not only that but U.S statistics state that about 5% of all personal injury cases and about the same amount of criminal lawsuits go to trial. Most personal injury cases often only require negotiation and settlement before reaching trial. Here are the reasons why most personal injury cases settle:

  • The defendant’s insurance company believes that the plaintiff’s case will succeed in trial
  • A low settlement amount is less expensive for the defendant to to settle than spend extra money on additional fees
  • The settlement offered to the plaintiff by the defendant’s insurance company is comparable to what the plaintiff would win at trial

With that being said, you want a lawyer who knows their way around outside of the courtroom. Good lawyers are not only legal experts but they also focus on customer service as well as the business side of law. A good lawyer should be well-rounded by knowing how to plead a case in court or trial and how to negotiate with insurance companies. No attorney is going to spend all their time in the courthouse, like the movies.
