Recovering an Out of Court Settlement

In Arizona, approximately 95% of truck accident cases will reach a settlement before the case ever goes to court. In order to do so, a lawyer will need to prove each and every element of the case to the insurance company or defendant. For instance, a truck accident victim would need to demonstrate how the defendant driver of the truck (or another party) was responsible, as well as how the accident affected the life of the plaintiff. 

If a case is strong, and there is ample persuasive evidence, the insurance company might feel that they will lose a trial. Therefore, they will offer a settlement. A good Maricopa County, AZ truck accident lawyer should be ready to prove a case before it goes to court. He or she can also gather appropriate evidence, review the extent of losses, and push for a fair and just settlement during negotiations. 

Taking the Case to Court

In the remaining 5% of cases, there will be some kind of dispute about whether the defendant is truly liable. There could also be a disagreement over the extent of losses, the plaintiff’s medical care, or other reasons. When this happens, a case may need to be filed with the court. A separate legal process will also take place. Even after a case has been filed at the court, a settlement is not necessarily out of the question. Our firm has settled many cases on the steps of the courthouse, as we were going into a trial!

Keep in mind that most insurance companies do not want to take any case to trial because their odds of winning are not great. Very few jurors will side with the insurance company over an injured victim.
