Exactly what is the likelihood i will settle my case with no lawsuit?
Approximately 1 / 2 of all cases settle just before litigation based on a requirement package. A demand package includes a demand letter which outlines the important points, theories of liability as well as a interest in money. Incorporated with the demand letter are corroborating documents. Usually after having a demand package is transmitted for the insurance carrier associated with an at-fault party, an arrangement offers are made or liability is denied. If liability is denied, a decision has to be made if it's worth filing a legal case. If your settlement offer is made a negotiated offer may be accepted. If settlement is not negotiated, the choice is always to file a lawsuit. Sometimes a mutually acceptable money is negotiated soon after a case is filed.

In case a case can not be settled right after the lawsuit is filed, it's prepared for either arbitration or trial. Depositions are taken and evidence is exchanged. Sometimes after depositions are taken and evidence is more fully exchanged, true settles. Otherwise the situation travels to arbitration or trial.
