Q: If I hire an Ontario personal injury lawyer for my Ontario injury case, does that mean there will be a trial?
A: The vast majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court. Fewer than 5% of these cases go to trial in Ontario. Some injury cases settle early on if your case can be negotiated with an adjuster. Other cases need the lawsuit process to start in order to get the attention of the insurance company. If the lawsuit starts, your case may still settle early, after discovery or mediation. Or, more likely, it will settle at the pre-trial or on the eve of trial.
However, some cases need a trial to achieve a fair result. In those cases, the injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth will take all steps necessary to handle the trial for you and obtain the best possible result.
