Do I Have to Go to Court for a Personal Injury Claim?

Filing a personal injury claim can be overwhelming because the legal process is foreign to most. When you’re trying to get through the physical and emotional recovery of your injury, going to court can be the last thing you want to do. Court isn’t necessary for every personal injury claim, but many claims end up in court because insurance companies aren’t willing to settle for the amount you deserve.

Although going to court draws out the claim process and may mean your settlement takes longer, hiring a West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer to negotiate on your behalf can take the stress off your shoulders.

At The Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo, we’re prepared to stand by you every step of the way and make sure you receive the maximum compensation possible for your damages.

Full Compensation for Your Damages

Your personal injury attorney will maximize your claim value by incorporating both economic and non-economic damages. These include all of the expenses you’ve accumulated as a result of your injury. This also includes all of the ways in which the injury has affected your lifestyle.

Going to court is beneficial because if you settle with an insurance company outside of court, they may not take into account all of the damages you’ve suffered. For example, they may compensate you for your medical expenses, but they may not take into account your future loss of income or the significant pain and suffering you’ve experienced.
