Yes, most cases you have a couple different types of alternatives. 1. You can settle the case out of court with the insurance company. The other alternative is, if you cannot get it settled, sometimes the insurance company will offer what’s called a pre-suit mediation, and that’s where all the parties get together and see if they can settle the case without having to go to court. Going to court increases attorney’s fees and could cost thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars.
