Will I Need to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit to Win My Case?
Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. Our Newark personal injury lawyers understand that injury cases often result in a financial hardship for the victim and the family.

In some cases, it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit to protect your best interests. However, filing a lawsuit does not mean that your case will go to court.

Our legal team treats each case as if we are preparing for a lawsuit and a trial. By treating your case as if we are going to trial, we are always prepared to file a lawsuit, if necessary.
Some reasons why we may need to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf include:
- The value of your claim is significantly more than the other party is offering to settle the claim.
- The other party disputes our claim that it is liable for causing your injury.
- The other party is alleging that you are partially to blame for causing the accident.
- There is a true dispute as to the law that governs your injury claim.
- The insurance company is acting in bad faith.
- You sustained traumatic injuries or disabilities that result in substantial future damages.
- The statute of limitations (deadline) for filing a personal injury lawsuit is about to expire, and your claim has not been settled.
