The answer to that is if we cannot reach an amicable agreement with the at- fault party and/or their insurance company, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to obtain an adequate recovery. This is a legal decision that should be made by your attorney with your advice and consent. Before filing suit in your case, we will obtain your permission and explain to you why we believe a lawsuit should be filed.
Although a lawsuit may have to be filed, settlement is always possible at any stage during the lawsuit. Negotiations continue and only a small percentage of lawsuits actually go to trial.
