Why Most Illinois Accident Cases Settle Out of Court Instead of Going to Trial
Studies show that some accident cases settle before trial. So why do most accident cases settle out of court? Willens & Baez has discussed some of these reasons.
Insurance Companies Willing to Settle
This is when an accident attorney negotiates a fair settlement, and the insurance company agrees to pay. In this instance, they agree to cover the full scope and extent of your injuries and losses. Learn more about 3 Benefits of Hiring an Accident Attorney.
As the injured victim, you want to obtain payment from the defendant in the shortest time possible. Negotiating a favorable settlement gets you a check quickly so you can move on with your life.
Saving Money on Litigation Costs
Litigation is a quite expensive way to settle an accident case. It is also time-consuming. Both sides incur such expenses, and if you wish to avoid them, the fair settlement provides the opportunity.

If your case doesn’t involve many complexities, an accident attorney will use their expertise to settle it out of court. At Willens & Baez, we strive to settle accident cases out of court to save time and money. However, if a case warrants a trial, we are equipped and ready to take it as far as it can go to achieve a fair settlement.
