How Long Will It Take My Personal Injury Case To Go To Court

by admin on May 28, 2010

 

Before a lawsuit is filed, your attorney will contact the company or individuals that you are filing against and inform them of your intention to file a lawsuit. This process will involve an exchange of information so that the company or party in question can see that you have a merit for a suit, and that you are serious about filing. At this point they may offer up a settlement and you and your attorney can decide if the settlement is fair. If not, you may continue negotiating until you reach a settlement and the case may never go to court.

This is an question that cannot be answered with a specific amount of weeks or months, because it will depend on many things. How much evidence and how many witnesses your attorney is bringing to the courtroom is a large part of it, and how many witnesses your opponent has as well.

When Will I Get My Money?

A personal injury attorney like Emery Ledger is vital in a case where you are seeking a settlement or an award of a large sum of money. For one thing, you may not be able to get the company or party that you are suing to take you seriously without an attorney. Second, you will not have access to years of experience in similar cases, knowledge of the law and especially car accident law, and a staff to help with the massive task of filing a lawsuit and proving liability. An attorney is vital to a personal injury case and Ledger & Associates has over ten years of experience with them.
