Submitting an injury claim does not automatically mean that you will have to appear in court and testify; however, there may be a time when you do.
Most claims are resolved outside the courtroom simply because insurance companies do not desire to take a chance with a jury’s decision in an injury claim.
However, if the insurance company has thoroughly investigated the case, and believe they can confirm they are in the right, then they are more likely to move forward with their case being litigated in a court room before a group of jurors. Whether or not your claim will go to court depends upon how strong they believe their case to be. Even so, this in no way guarantees them a verdict in their favor, and you should not be intimidated by this event.
