If NY Accident Case is So Disputed, Why Would Case Ever Settle? NY Accident Attorney Explains
NY Car Accident & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
It seems strange doesn’t it?
Your case is hotly disputed.
The defense disputes who caused your accident. They also hotly dispute the extent of your injuries.
If they are fighting your case tooth and nail on both who was actually responsible for your injuries and the harms and losses you suffered, how could your case ever get settled before going all the way to trial?
The reality is that the majority of cases in New York involving accidents, medical malpractice and wrongful death are settled prior to trial. That begs the question…
Why would a case ever settle if they are so hotly disputed and contested?
There are important psychological reasons as well as strategic and tactical explanations about why a case would settle.
The reality is that anytime a case goes to a jury trial, none of the parties ever know what the outcome will be. There is a significant risk of going to trial.
As a result of that risk there is the possibility that either side could lose or either side could win.
If the injured victim wins, there is the possibility that a jury could award significantly more than what the case is worth. That will certainly result in much litigation as well as appeals that could drag on for many years after the trial verdict.
