Virginia's Personal Injury Lawyers™ Serving All of Virginia & Northeast NC

Will I Need to Go to Court for My Car Accident Case?

Car Accident Attorneys in Norfolk

Not all car accident lawsuits end up in court. In fact, most claims are settled before they go to court. There is a huge incentive for at-fault parties to settle and avoid the expensive cost of litigation, but a good car accident attorney will not accept any settlement that is less than what his or her client needs and deserves. If your car accident suit does have to go to court, our Norfolk trial attorneys will pursue maximum compensation possible for your damages.

For a free review of your car accident claim, please call a Norfolk car accident attorney at Kalfus & Nachman PC today.

To Litigate or Not to Litigate Your Car Accident

When you are involved in a car accident, there are two major options available to collect your damages from the at-fault driver. You can opt to go to court and try to collect your damages utilizing that method, allowing the jury to decide both whether the other driver is responsible and what your damage award should be, or you can settle outside of court and accept the negotiated offer made by the responsible driver's insurance company.

It is important to carefully weigh your options before deciding how best to proceed with collecting car accident compensation. Factors taken into consideration include:

  • How solid is the proof that the other driver was at fault?
  • Are you willing to wait out the time it takes for cases to go to court and be settled?
  • Has an insurance company offered a reasonable settlement?
  • What are the policy limits on the insurance?
  • Are there any aggravating circumstances (example: the defendant a drunk driver)?

After our experienced Norfolk car accident attorneys have gone over the details of your case, we can advise you about what to do. When you come to our office for your no-cost consultation, be sure to have any medical documents, the police report and any other information pertinent to your case with you. Photographs and eyewitness statements are always very helpful, too.

If you have been involved in a car accident, get in touch with Kalfus & Nachman PC today to schedule a no-cost consultation. We happily serve injured victims throughout Norfolk, Newport News, and Roanoke. Virginia.
