A: Each case varies and is unique. Therefore, no two cases will be resolved in the same way. However, in general, most civil lawsuits will be settled prior to trial.

In Philadelphia, accident and injury lawsuits are put on a trial schedule. This schedule dictates when the parties must complete discovery and when important hearings will occur, such as a settlement conference and pre-trial hearing. This schedule ultimately helps to facilitate settlement because the settlement conference will be scheduled shortly after all discovery is complete. If the case does not settle, then trial will be scheduled. In lieu of trial, the parties may attempt a private resolution such as an arbitration or mediation.
