What happens after a personal injury trial?

The trial is over, so what’s next?

If a verdict is rendered in your favor, it usually takes a few weeks to a month to finalize the results. If the defense attorney does not appeal the verdict, your lawyer will work out the final figures with respect to the verdict, interest, court costs, deductions and attorneys’ fees.

Hopefully, you will not lose. If you do, your lawyer will discuss the possibilities of appeal. Appeal is usually a very expensive process but your lawyer will advise you whether or not appeal is appropriate.

In a few rare cases, if you lose, the insurance company may be willing to offer a nominal settlement to avoid an appeal. This is not very probable. The best thing to do is to concentrate on winning your case. If your case is clear on liability (fault of the other party) and you have prepared yourself well for trial, the chances are that you will win your case. Justice usually prevails.

Your personal injury case is very important to you – your lawyer knows this. In today’s society, insurance companies have a lot of power, money and influence. However, most insurance companies try to be fair in settling ordinary cases. They do try to compensate people who have been legitimately injured as a result of the negligence of some one else. It is important for you to have a positive attitude throughout your case. This requires making an active effort to recover from your injuries. Cooperate with your lawyer. Be honest about your case with everyone involved. The Constitution of the United States, your state laws and fairness dictate that injured victims should be compensated for injuries resulting from the negligence of a third party. This is the law and it is on your side. Place your faith, confidence, and trust in your lawyer and yourself and you will obtain justice.
