Most personal injury and Illinois Workers’ Compensation cases end up being settled.
Statistics show that over 90 percent of these cases will be settled.
It takes a long time from filing a case until is allowed to go to trial.
Once a case goes to trial the Judge, the Jury or the Arbitrator makes the final decision in the case. This means you could get no money or a low award or verdict.
Settlements are more predictable. You know the amount you will receive.
Settlements are paid out faster.
The important thing to know is the value of your case so that you will receive a fair settlement.
Having an experienced injury lawyer or workers’ compensation lawyer will help guide you toward a settlement that is of maximum value.
The experienced lawyer will know your case’s weaknesses and strengths and what a Judge or Arbitrator will likely award.
