Can I Settle My Case After a Lawsuit is Filed?

Hey, I'm Ryan Greathouse, the owner of Great House Trial Law. When an insurance company denies your claim, filing a lawsuit might seem like the only recourse. Yet, many clients fret over the time it takes for a lawsuit to reach trial.

Here's a ray of hope: only a small fraction, around five percent, of cases proceed to a jury trial. Even after filing a lawsuit, it's highly probable to resolve your case without going to trial. Settlements can occur at any stage during the litigation process—some are resolved soon after filing, while others conclude right before trial.

Negotiations play a pivotal role pre-trial, enabling resolutions through settlements, which are notably quicker than trials. Settlements afford greater control to you and your attorney over negotiations. However, it's essential to weigh the pros and cons—while settlements offer speed and control, trials might potentially result in higher compensation, though settlements are permanent.

Before initiating a lawsuit, understanding your rights and obligations is crucial. Seeking guidance from an attorney is imperative to navigate against formidable insurance companies.
