Settling Lowers Legal Costs
Going to trial is almost always more expensive than settling your case. You have to pay witnesses for their time and travel. Expert witnesses can cost hundreds of dollars an hour. You even have to pay a fee if you want a jury to hear your case. All of these expenses can quickly add up to thousands of dollars. If you settle, you avoid many of these costs and keep more dollars in your pocket. Learn more about Roles of A Personal Injury Attorney.
It’s Less Stressful
Walking into a courtroom is stressful, no matter how prepared you are. Even if you don't plan to testify, the other side can call you to the stand. You'll spend long days sitting at the table with your attorney while the case unfolds. There are tense moments of objections, motions, opening, and closing statements, and the long wait for the jury to make their decision. When you settle outside of court, you get to skip all of these things.
