Trial vs. Settlement: What’s Right for Me

There is no magic answer for which option is correct, going to trial or reaching a settlement. Instead, there are certain factors that should be considered in every case to decide what is best for that particular set of circumstances. Your Brunswick injury and car accident attorneys at Merritt & Merritt Law Firm are the best resource to guide you in deciding whether or not you should settle or go to trial. They will look at certain criteria, including:

  • The willingness of the other party(ies) to settle
  • The amount of proof that you have to justify the amount of compensation you are seeking to recover
  • The willingness of the other party(ies) to compromise on the amount they will pay
  • How quickly you need to receive the funds
  • Whether or not you want the proceedings to be public, as most trials are open to the public
  • The availability and reliability of witnesses
  • Whether or not the defendant was negligent or wilful in the conduct that caused the damages

Trials can be expensive and drawn-out processes, and the outcome is never certain. Having a skilled lawyer to help you decide if proceeding to trial is the best option is always advised.

Car Accident Tips:

Did you know that the roads are slickest just as the rain is starting to fall? This is because all the oils in the street — which weigh less than water — suddenly rise to the top of the asphalt and make the roads extra slippery.

10 Second Rule

Use a 10-second rule when using freeways and streets. To know if you’re following at least 10 seconds behind, locate a stationary object ahead of you. As the vehicle ahead of you passes the stationary object, count to 10. Your vehicle should not have passed the stationary object by the time you’ve counted to 10. This increased distance allows a truck driver to focus on the bigger picture and the road ahead, including an ample reaction time so an accident can be potentially averted.
