As Dallas personal injury lawyers, our job is to make sure that you, as our client, understands your legal rights and also advocates for those rights. As such, under the law, if you were injured or received damages due to negligence, such as in a car accident case, you have the right to pursue compensation against those parties and hold them responsible.

The thing is, though, that you should understand that the lawsuit process can be fairly lengthy. Courts don’t always move cases as rapidly along as we would like. If you are hurt, more than likely, you will want to receive your settlement as quickly as possible and help you move on with your life.

Consider the Benefits of Settlement

After filing a lawsuit, there are several steps that you must go through before the case can even be brought to trial, if at all. Most of the time, settling cases may be your best bet, especially if you have a defendant who is backed by tough insurance defense lawyers against you.

Here is a basic outline of the process:

  1. The lawsuit, a complaint and the summons, are filed and then served to the defendant.
  2. The defendant answers the suit (or may make other motions or counterclaim).
  3. The lawsuit goes into discovery, where both sides interrogate each other.
  4. The case goes into mediation, where a good number of cases end up settling.
  5. Case goes into trial, either heard by a jury or solely the judge.
  6. A judgement is made.
  7. Appeals can be brought up by party who loses.

Remember also that lawsuits are very costly. By filing suit, you incur all of the fees of litigation: court costs, jury fees, your attorney’s fees, etc. Do not try to push your case into litigation or going overly aggressive, especially when it goes against the advice of your attorney. Otherwise, you may find that your attorney will no longer wish to represent you if he or she no longer finds cause to do so.

Consult with Daspit Law Firm about Your Options

The difference between our Dallas personal injury attorneys and others is that we provide honest, straightforward, and ethical legal advice. The legal world is fraught with challenges that the average person may have difficulty handling on their own, which is why we assure you that we will never lead your case astray. Making the right moves towards settling or going to trial will depend entirely on the circumstances of your incident, the severity of your case, how much compensation you should expect to receive, the costs of litigation, plus many other factors.

We are interested solely in advocating for the rights of those who were injured, and we do this by exploring every avenue possible. Be sure to give Daspit Law Firm a call when you are ready to see how we can help you.
