The Benefits of Settling Personal Injury Cases Out of Court

Ebenstein & Ebenstein, a law firm in Hartford, Connecticut, provided a full range of high-quality legal representation. Having focused much of its practice on personal injury law and litigation, Ebenstein & Ebenstein attorneys expertly argued on behalf of clients both in and out of court.

Settling personal injury cases out of court is beneficial for a variety of reasons, one of which is that it is typically less expensive. Not only is the percentage received by the attorney often less when compared to trials, settlements also reduce the number of billable hours an attorney works on the case.

Trials are also very stressful for all those involved. Both sides must complete extensive examinations and cross-examinations while also having their character scrutinized. Trials require being present at various depositions and mediations in addition to the actual court hearing, causing more physical and emotional stress. Further personal details are protected with a settlement and the added option of a confidentiality agreement prevents the case from being spoken about in public at all, whereas trial cases are public record and available for everyone to review.
