Hello. My name is Roger Ghai, and I handle car accidents and trucking accident cases all over Metro Atlanta. Sometimes I get questions from clients about whether they should retain me because they are concerned that if they do retain an injury attorney, that their case will automatically go through trial, and the client really many times doesn’t want that stress. So the answer to your question is most cases do not actually go to trial.
Most cases, 85%, probably settle without ever having to go into court. And moreover, if we do have to file a lawsuit, even then the case typically doesn’t go to trial, probably there’s only about four to 5% of cases that actually go to trial. So if you are thinking of hiring a lawyer, but you are worried about whether you’re going to have to endure the experience of going through two or three years of litigation just to get compensation for your injuries, feel free to call me at (770) 792-1000, and then we can discuss the likelihood of whether your case is going to go to trial. Many times it will depend on how reasonable the insurance company is as to whether we’re going to be able to just get this case voluntarily settled without even filing a lawsuit. So just my advice would be don’t give up on your claim because you were worried about having to go through the litigation process and the stress and the expense of doing that, feel free to call me again at (770) 792-1000.
