If I file a Champaign personal injury claim, do I have to appear in court?
If a claimant and defendant are unable to reach a settlement on their own, the case may move to court and be settled by a judge or jury. However, most personal injury claims do not go to trial. In order to avoid the expense and negative publicity of a trial, defendants are often willing to negotiate a settlement with injured parties outside of court.
If you are interested in pursuing a claim against a negligent party, you need an attorney who will be able to protect your rights both in court and during out-of-court negotiations. Contact the Champaign personal injury attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. at (217) 328-2828.
