Will My Personal Injury Case Ever Actually Go to Trial?

Beers and Gordon P.A. / Civil Trial Attorneys / Personal Injury AttorneysGiven the nature of our business, and a frequent portrayal of the legal profession as a regular courtroom drama, it’s understandable that anyone should wonder if a real case over a real situation means a real trial. First and foremost, should a case ever need to reach the courtroom, we have the years of civil trial experience to warrant your trust. But it’s also important to review the way in which a personal injury claim normally operates.

When you’re involved in a motor vehicle collision, the first thing we’ll do, as your attorney at law, is send a demand to the insurance company to compensate you for your injury. Often times, insurance companies are fighting tooth and nail to pay you as little as possible for your injury claim. It’s at that point, the majority of the time, we end up filing a lawsuit in the courthouse. Filing a lawsuit, or a complaint on your behalf enters us into a phase called litigation. Once we enter into litigation, we’re not just dealing with an insurance company and an adjuster, we’re also dealing with a defense attorney and the process becomes more adversarial.

Chances are, your case will usually be resolved at what’s called a mediation. A mediation is when we sit down with you and the defense, and a third party mediator. A mediator is a neutral person who has no interest in the outcome of your case. It’s at this time that most cases are resolved without having to go to trial.
