Q. Do you think my slip and fall lawsuit will go to trial?
A: Ultimately whether or not you go to trial will depend upon you. It's your case, so you make the determination whether or not you will agree to settle or go to trial. I can tell you the vast majority of civil cases settle. The best thing to do is to discuss this with your attorney see what settlement is on the table and compare that with how long it would take to go to trial and the risk of losing.
