If you’re considering filing an injury claim in Texas for an accident that someone else caused, you could be hesitating because you are worried about going to court. You are likely thinking, “Do I have to go to court for a personal injury claim in Texas?”

Many people don’t like the idea of going to court, even though they know they are entitled to damages, but you don’t have to worry about court. Here’s why.

Lawsuits vs. Personal Injury Claims in Texas

Most injury claims don’t go to court. They can almost always be settled outside of the courtroom through the process of insurance negotiations. This process involves sending your injury claim to the at-fault party’s insurance company and demanding they provide you with a settlement to pay for your losses.

Insurance negotiations can be a challenge in their own right, so it’s usually a good idea to have an attorney help you with this. You will be required to prove the fault of the person who hurt you. You will also need to show evidence of your losses. Losses are things like medical bills, missed wages, pain and suffering, and mental health treatment costs.

In most cases, the insurance company will eventually agree to pay you as long as you have strong evidence that their insured customer was to blame for the accident.

If they don’t agree to pay you the settlement you deserve, that’s usually when you will want to file a lawsuit in court. Even when you do bring your case to court, it’s still possible that the insurance company will settle before the case goes to trial.

Team Up with a Personal Injury Attorney in Texas

You shouldn’t fear going to court, because your personal injury lawyer will be there to help you with your case, even if it does go to trial.
