Not necessarily. Many personal injury suits are settled out of court. Often they are settled with mediation, in which a third party, called the mediator, helps resolve the case to the satisfaction of everyone involved, all without going to court. It’s important to understand that a case can still go into litigation. This doesn’t mean it’ll head to court; it just means that it’s now a legal proceeding, rather than merely a claim involving private individuals and insurance companies. Don’t let the word “litigation” scare you away — if you’re concerned about a lawsuit going to court, a personal injury attorney can advise you on your options and work diligently to resolve the case as quickly as possible.
