Will My Case Go to Court?

It depends. It is always important to have an experienced lawyer on your side to get the compensation you deserve.

For a personal injury case, sometimes there is no need to go to court for a civil matter because a talented lawyer can help you negotiate a settlement that is accepted by both sides. In this situation, nobody goes to court, yet everyone carefully creates an agreement that resolves the situation.  While a lot of civil cases settle, the insurance companies keep offering less and less on cases.  Due to this it is important to have a lawyer representing you who is familiar with trying cases in front of a judge or jury.  Many lawyers claim to handle personal injury or car accident cases, but have never seen the inside of a court room.  Before hiring a lawyer make sure you know that they are experienced in litigation.  Also, the insurance companies will sometimes offer more money to law firms that go to court because the insurance company knows that the lawyer isn’t just looking for a quick settlement for the client. 

For a criminal case, a court appearance may be unavoidable. You’ll need to present your best case to the court and a lawyer can help you show the judge that you’re a respectable person who is trying to do the right thing. Sometimes, you can avoid going to court in a criminal case if your lawyer can negotiate a legal arrangement with the prosecutor.  Once again, it is important to have a lawyer who understands the details of trying a criminal case in front of a judge or jury.  Prosecutors know the lawyers that will try a case in front of a judge or jury and the lawyers that are looking to plead their client guilty.  If you have a real trial lawyer on your side that can often lead to better offers from the prosecutor’s office.

For a family law case – Family law cases such as divorce can be complex and may involve court appearances. In some cases, you can negotiate arrangements with the other side with the help of your family law attorney and may avoid the need for a court appearance.  With family law cases it is always best to avoid court if possible so you don’t have bring the children into the litigation.  Also, it helps keep your attorney fees down, but sometimes there is no choice and you have to try the case because the other side is not being reasonable.  In these situations, it is crucial to have an experienced family law attorney to try your case.

For a worker’s compensation case, these cases often involve an appearance in front of a workers’ compensation commissioner.  Make sure your lawyer has experience with worker’s compensation claims like yours.

Please contact us for an initial consultation about your case and we will help you understand your options and the potential outcomes involved.
