What Are the Stats on Out of Court Settlement for a Personal Injury Case?

A lot of people don't file personal injury lawsuits because they're afraid they will need to go to trial. But we want you to know that this is not necessarily the case. A lot of these lawsuits are settled out of court because it's in the best interests of both parties to do so. Let's talk more about that. 

How Many Personal Injury Lawsuits are Settled Out of Court?

You're going to be shocked at this percentage. Close to 95% of all personal injury cases are settled prior to ever going to trial. To put that into perspective, that's 19 out of every 20 cases. 

The odds are in your favor. If you file a personal injury case, it is very likely that you will never see the inside of a courtroom as a result. 

What Happens if You do go to Court?

Of course, there's the 5% chance that your case will go to court. First and foremost, you'll want to be represented by the best St. Louis personal injury attorneys. We can certainly help you navigate through every step of your case.
