After surviving and enduring the loss and suffering that comes along with needing to recover from the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, it’s important to retake steps to regain control. One of the steps is taking action by inquiring about where the law provides you with remedies to seek compensation. Whether your trauma is emotional or physical, some expenses come with the process of recovery, and you deserve to have a liaison that will afford you the right to recover in a way that is cost-effective. Hiring a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney should be your first step in regaining control of your situation.
Have you found yourself in a personal injury lawsuit? It’s not easy to deal with emotionally and depending on the accident, not physically either. Based on research less than 5% of personal injury claims reach trial, which could be a good thing because that usually means that the case is likely to have been settled before reaching court. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is one of the many benefits of making it possible to avoid extra fees that come with having a trial.
Once the Plaintiff and the defendant (or defendant’s insurance company) have agreed to the terms of settlement which could include a variety of different losses such as past, present and future medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, etc. The case is settled, and the lawsuit is dropped. If your case is one of the cases that happen to go to trial, it is most likely because the insurance company has either offered an unreasonable amount of settlement or refused to pay for all losses.
Your personal injury attorney will have an estimate regarding the value of your case and prepared an argument set for the success of your trial. It may take months for the trial to be set but either way at any time before, during or after trial the settlement can be reached and agreed upon by both parties.
After the trial either the jurors ruled in favor of the plaintiff or defendant. If the Plaintiff wins, they will be compensated for losses; all amounts depend on level and type of injuries experienced. If the defendant wins, plaintiff has the potential of reimbursing the fees and expenses of the defendant. In most states, usually 30 days after the verdict has been reached, both parties have the right to appeal. The court handling the appeal reserves the right to overturn the judgment if it has been determined that the law has not been handled or applied properly by judge/ jurors.
