Will I Need To Appear In Court For My Glendale, California Persona Injury Case?
One of the biggest fears many people have when they have been the victim of a personal injury accident is that they will be required to appear in court if they choose to pursue compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately this frequently prevents victims from seeking the compensation that they deserve for their injuries. Each personal injury accident is unique and each has its own individual set of circumstances and facts. There is no precise formula for determining which Glendale personal injury cases will end up in trial, but the team at Ledger & Associates-Glendale will do everything possible to settle your case without the need for a trial. Don’t let your fear of a courtroom prevent you from seeking the compensation to which you are entitled.
According to founding partner Emery Ledger, the vast majority – around 95%- of the personal injury cases handled by Ledger & Associates-Glendale are settled by an out of court settlement. When a case is settled by agreement, the plaintiff (person injured) is compensated for her injuries by the defendant and the case terminated without the victim ever having to step foot in a courtroom. The personal injury team at Ledger & Associates has over a decade of experience investigating and negotiating personal injury accidents and are usually able to negotiate a settlement agreement that will provide you with the compensation you deserve without the stress of a trial.
In a small number of cases a trial becomes inevitable. This generally comes about because the parties cannot agree on negligence or cannot agree on compensation. Negligence is essentially the legal term for fault or blame. In order for Ledger & Associates to obtain the compensation you deserve by reaching an out of court settlement agreement, the defendant must admit and accept that he was negligent. In situations where the defendant does not accept responsibility for the accident you may need to take your case to trial. Additionally, if the defendant accepts responsibility but doesn’t agree to the amount of compensation you have asked for to settle your case you may need to go to trial. If, after consultation with your team at Ledger & Associates-Glendale, you believe the value of your case is more than the defendant is willing to pay then you may decide to take the case to trial. Rest assured that if the need to present your case to a jury arises that you have an experienced law firm behind you that will fight just as hard for you inside the courtroom as they have outside.
With the team at Ledger & Associates-Glendale representing your interests you can be assured that they will pour all the firm’s resources into investigating your case, negotiating a settlement for you and ultimately litigating your case in a court of law if it becomes necessary.
