Will Your Auto Accident Case Settle or Go to Trial?
The reality is that most of the auto accident cases that our firm handles for clients in Fort Collins and surrounding areas are resolved through settlements.
In a settlement, another party agrees to pay for your damages in exchange for being released from any future liability. It avoids the need to go to trial.
Your attorney, Steve Ray, will carefully prepare your case, giving us a position of strength when we make a settlement demand with the other party’s insurance company.
We will also closely evaluate any settlement offers and advise you on whether accepting the legal settlement would be in the best interest of you and your family. The decision of whether to accept a settlement, of course, will be yours to make.
If a settlement cannot be reached, our highly experienced trial lawyers will be ready to present your case in court, where a jury will determine whether you are entitled to a recovery and how much you should recover.
Keep in mind: Settlement negotiations may continue through trial, and a settlement could even be reached after a verdict is returned.
When we secure a settlement or verdict, we can take immediate steps to collect the amount, resolve any liens attached to your recovery and disburse the funds owed to you in either a lump sum or through a series of payments.
