Your attorney is with you every step of the litigation process.
This process can be long. Both sides investigate the case being built by the opposing side. Both sides get to ask questions and get documents from each other. Both sides get to interview the other party, any witnesses and sometimes, the doctors involved. The purpose is for each side to get a clear picture of the case.
Most of the time, cases are resolved before going to trial. The two sides can settle the case at any time before a trial begins. Sometimes, the two sides bring in a mediator to help negotiate a settlement between the two parties. If resolution is achieved, the case is closed. If not, we go to trial.
We are trial lawyers, and will gladly fight for full justice in front of a jury. We prepare for this possibility from the first day you tell us about your case. While most cases are settled before going to court, the word “settled” usually means you took less than what your case truly may be worth. Most of the time, the only way to make an insurance company pay for the full amount of your damages is for a jury to make them do so.
