Most Personal Injury cases do not go to trial.  On average, about 95% of the cases get settled pre-suit.  However, if we do have to file a lawsuit, does that mean I am going to trial?  The typical answer is "no".....even with the 5% that a lawsuit is filed, the vast majority of those lawsuits get settled before you get to the courthouse steps.  However, if you end up filing a lawsuit, you need to be prepared that it might be one of the few that actually make it to the jury!
