The short answer is no. The majority of injury cases can be successfully resolved without litigation—without the injured victim needing to sue the at-fault driver in order to receive sufficient compensation for all losses that resulted from the crash. In these instances, the victim’s attorney and representative from the other driver’s insurance company are able to arrive at a settlement figure acceptable to both sides. Of course, there are cases where an agreement is not possible—when the different estimated values of the case are simply too far apart to be reconciled to either party’s satisfaction. In those instances, a lawsuit must be filed in court.
