Many personal injury cases can be settled before going to trial. There are reasons, however, that settling out of court may not be an option:
- Disputed liability or damages
- No settlement or an unreasonable settlement is offered by defendant
- The plaintiff wishes for legal representation to go to trial
Your attorney will communicate with you through the entire legal process, and help you understand if a trial could happen in your case and completely be prepared to represent you in trial.
Is there a time limit to file a personal injury case?
Yes, there is a time limit called Statute of Limitations within which you must file your personal injury lawsuit. Once the Statute of Limitations has expired, you may not file a lawsuit. In Arizona, the Statute of Limitations depends on the type of accident.
