If I hire a lawyer for my Ottawa injury case, does that mean there will be a trial?

Ottawa Lawyer — Hiring a lawyer for your Ottawa personal injury case does not necessarily mean that you will have to go to trial.  In fact, most personal injury cases are settled out of court.  In Ontario, less than five percent of injury cases go to trial.  These statistics mean that your case will most likely be settled without having to go to court.  In the majority of cases, settlements are successfully reached through negotiations between yourself and your lawyer, and the other party.

Regardless of whether or not your case goes to trial, it is beneficial to work with a personal injury lawyer.  They will be able to negotiate on your behalf to ensure that your case is dealt with in the best manner possible and increase your chances of receiving a fair result.  In the event that your case does go to court, a personal injury lawyer will handle the trial for you.  Seeking the assistance of a lawyer allows you to receive legal guidance and benefit from their experience dealing with cases like yours.  A personal injury lawyer will do their best to receive a fair settlement for your case without having to go to trial.  For a variety of reasons, some cases have to go to court in order to be settled.  If this happens with your case, you can be confident that your lawyer will do everything they can to obtain a successful outcome.

Pursuing negotiations or a legal trial without a lawyer will likely give you a less successful result and lower compensation.  If you think you have a personal injury case, think about hiring a lawyer who can work on your behalf to help you receive a fair settlement, regardless of whether or not your case goes to trial.
