Making a decision whether to settle or take your personal injury claim to court can be difficult. At Somerville Laundry Lomax, we help guide you through this pivotal decision, ensuring you make the best decision for your unique situation.

Strength of Your Case

Personal injury claims can be complex and may involve grey areas that could sway a judge’s decision. If the defendant’s negligence is clear and there’s a duty of care owed to you, commencing court proceedings or proceeding to a court hearing might be the right decision, especially if the settlement offered falls short.

However, if aspects of your case are in dispute, perhaps your actions played a role or the extent of the defendant’s negligence is uncertain, commencing court proceedings or proceeding to a court hearing becomes riskier. Settlements provide a sense of closure and manage the risks of going to court, which are important factors to consider.
