    90% of the cases are settled.

    Workmen's Comp cases always take long. They take their time so it seems. But in any event they will probably settle, as going to court is too expensive especially if you have an attorney and even if you don't they usually always pay up unless your claim is high or if they think you're lying about the injury.

    Court costs a lot of money, so whichever works out cheaper for them (if the case is expensive they might go to court because a rich insurance company vs a poor person who can't afford a lawyer is usually no contest)

    It really depends. They will probably offer a very low settlement amount first. If you ask for more, they will have to decide if the extra money justifies the risk and hassle of going to court.
