If my car accident case ends up in a lawsuit, will I have to go to court?

The short answer is you will probably not have to go to court if a lawsuit is filed.  Most car accident cases are settled out of court. If your case is settled out of court, you will never have to go to the courthouse.

The only way you would ever need to go to court is if your injury lawsuit is not settled, and goes to trial. Again, this does not happen very often, because the great majority of cases are settled and you would not need to go to the courthouse.

If your case happens to be one of the very few cases that cannot be settled, then you would have to go to court. But fear not, even if a trial is necessary to get you the compensation you deserve, Mr. Dysart, a former federal prosecutor and nationally recognized personal injury trial lawyer, has the experience necessary to represent you at trial.  Moreover, he will be with you every step of the way at court, and we do everything in our power to make you feel comfortable. In fact, many of our clients whose cases we took to trial came away from the experience with positive feelings.
