Statistically, if you have a viable legitimate case with serious injuries, I think approximately 50 to 60% settle out of court. Now, by out of court, you mean without filing a lawsuit, without going through certain court procedures, then the percentage is a lot less.
If you’re talking about cases that settle but do not go to jury trial but settle up to the courthouse steps, then the majority of cases with serious damages that are legitimate cases do settle. Some of your most serious cases do not settle. Some of your most serious cases are offered money, but not appropriate money. That’s between you and your lawyer. That’s why you should always go to a lawyer as soon as possible.Share
