Does filing a personal injury claim in Virginia mean that I have to go to trial in the courthouse?
No. Simply bringing a personal injury claim does not mean, in and of itself, that you are headed for the courthouse. The vast majority of cases settle without even having to file a lawsuit. However, in cases where the insurance company is unreasonable, you may be forced to file a lawsuit and even take your case to trial in order to recover what you are entitled to under the law.
At the Law Offices of David L. Marks, we approach every case from the beginning as if it were to go to trial. That way, we are not surprised when we get there.
