Will we automatically have to go to court if we file a lawsuit in Georgia?

A frequent question that I get from clients is, will they have to go to court if they file a lawsuit? The answer to that question is no. Most cases settle. Some settle before a lawsuit. Some settle after it. Some even settle after a trial. But the best way to put your case in the best position possible for settlement is to actually be willing to file a lawsuit and go to court.

If the insurance company and their lawyers know that, that your attorney is willing to fight for you, you’re going to get a much better result. We do file a lot of lawsuits at this law firm because we don’t take what their offer is, because a lot of times it’s not fair. In order to get the best possible result, we will file a suit, and sometimes we will have to go to court.
