There are several benefits to taking a lawsuit to trial:

Full compensation: Going to trial may result in the plaintiff being able to recover all of their damages, including pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages. This may be more than the defendant is willing to offer in a settlement.

Closure: Going to trial can provide closure for the plaintiff, as they can have their day in court and have their case heard by a judge or jury.

Deterrent effect: A lawsuit that goes to trial can have a deterrent effect on the defendant and others in the same field, as it shows that the plaintiff is willing to fight for their rights and that they will not back down easily.

Establishing a legal precedent: Going to trial can establish a legal precedent, which can be beneficial for future cases.

The opportunity to appeal: If the outcome of the trial is not favorable for the plaintiff, going to trial allows them the opportunity to appeal the decision.

It's important to note that going to trial can be a long and costly process, and it's not always the best option for every case. At Guenin Law we can help you weigh the pros and cons of going to trial and advise you on the best course of action for your specific case.

In summary, taking a lawsuit to trial can provide a jury trial, the opportunity to recover full compensation, closure, deterrent effect, establishing a legal precedent and the possibility of an appeal. However, it's also important to consider the time and costs involved.
