Settle or Litigate Your Motorcycle Accident Injury Claim

At some point during the process of your motorcycle accident claim, you may have to decide whether or not you want to accept the settlement offer the at-fault driver’s insurance company has offered or if you want to take the case to trial for a jury to decide. This may not be an easy decision, however, it is very important to discuss your options with your attorney. Very often the decision to settle or to take it to court rests on these factors:

  • Is the victim likely to recover more damages by negotiating a settlement or winning a lawsuit? Your attorney will know if there is a cap on the total dollar amount that you can win in a lawsuit. Compare that to how much your case is worth and it may help you decide which avenue to pursue.
  • How much will it cost to go to trial versus negotiate a settlement? Your attorney will give you an honest assessment of what the costs will be.
  • How long will the court case take to resolve as compared to a settlement negotiation? Your attorney will explain what the potential timeline may be before the case goes to court and comes to a resolution.
