What to Expect Part 4: The Trial

What to Expect Part 4: The Trial

A trial. One of the more intimidating parts of any personal injury case. The trial is a trying time for anybody who may have sustained a serious injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. Unfortunately, it is one thing that should happen to help the victim and other potential victims in the future.

The idea of trials can be enough to turn some people off from taking legal action against the negligent party. However, if you have a better understanding of how the trial works, it could be more encouraging to seek justice. Here are some things plaintiffs can expect.

What Happens During Trials

Trials are a time in which the parties attempt to present their case to the courts using the evidence from the discovery process. As such, the legal parties may utilize witness testimony, medical records, accident reenactment, and any other evidence available to help the court determine fault.

Both sides can argue and counter-argue claims, but at the end of the trial, it is the court’s decision regarding who is liable in an accident and how severe the damages are. The court will decide the amount available to the plaintiff in economic and non-economic damages.

The Impact of Trials

Typically, when someone accepts a settlement from the defendant, that’s all there is to it. The settlement is given to the plaintiff and the case typically goes away. A trial, however, does more than just help the plaintiff get compensation.

Trials are about justice. They’re about preventing future problems and protecting individuals from becoming victims or being taken advantage of. They bring to public view a very serious issue of negligence.
