What happens in a personal injury lawsuit?
When you work with a personal injury attorney, you become the plaintiff in the lawsuit. The defendant (the person or entity responsible for your injury) will likely also hire legal representation, at which point attorneys for both sides will begin to gather evidence, including documentation, personal accounts, and depositions. This process is called discovery, and we at Schilling Law are diligent to find the evidence that will support your case.
Most personal injury lawsuits never actually make it to court. In most instances, a personal injury case is settled before a trial is required. This means that you agree to accept a certain amount of compensation rather than taking the matter before the courts. Settling requires you to absolve the defendant of liability, meaning that you release him from any further financial responsibility once the settlement has been agreed to.
Any decisions on settling or trying your case in court are yours to make. With the expert team at Schilling Law to advise you, you’ll be able to determine what’s best for you.
