One of the most common questions asked by clients with a personal injury claim is will my claim go to Court? Many people do not want to go to Court for a variety of reasons.
Most claims for personal injuries in Queensland do not go to Court. The chances of your claim going to Court is so small as to be of no concern and you should not worry about this issue.
All claims for personal injury in Queensland must proceed to a compulsory conference. This is a settlement conference where you and your personal injury lawyer and Barrister meet with the insurer and try and negotiate a settlement. Almost all claims resolve at the compulsory conference or shortly after.
The insurer does not want your claim to go to Court given the time and costs involved and the uncertainty of what may happen in Court. Similarly, your lawyer will advise you of the costs and risks in going to Court.
Settling your claim before Court is always recommended as a settlement takes away risk, saves money and saves time.
