What is an injury lawsuit, and when is it necessary to go to trial?

An injury lawsuit is a legal action brought to court by an individual who suffered an injury because of someone else’s fault. In a personal injury lawsuit, a formal judicial proceeding is conducted to verify testimonies and try to reach a settlement. Majority of injury claims are settled at this stage, without going to trial.

Cases that are not able to get a fair settlement for the individual’s injuries and other damages, are taken to trial, to ensure that the victims get the justice that they deserve. Going to trial may be time consuming however, the jury can take a detailed look at the case and better understand the severity of the case. They may be able to reach a decision that is worthy of the time and resources invested in the trial.
