Settlement or Trial

Arizona personal injury attorney Social Security Benefits FormAn Arizona personal injury attorney can explain the process that a typical personal injury lawsuit entails. While most cases settle before an actual trial, a minority of cases do continue to this point. While an Arizona personal injury attorney may be able to offer some guidelines that can indicate that a case may not settle, it is nearly impossible for an Arizona personal injury lawyer to predict with 100 percent accuracy if your own case will proceed to trial.

Steps to Take If You Go to Trial

An Arizona personal injury attorney can provide you with a list of actions for you to take if your case does proceed to trial. A few of the actions that an Arizona personal injury attorney may indicate are necessary may include the following:

  • Answer interrogatories – your Arizona personal injury attorney can help you accurately and honestly answer questions posed by the defendant;
  • Attend a deposition – your Arizona personal injury lawyer may depose parties or witnesses, or the defendant may have you deposed;
  • Maintain contact with your legal counsel – your Arizona personal injury attorney will need to be kept aware of any changes in your contact information, your injury, damages and other information related to your accident; and
  • Prepare and gather necessary documents – maintain accurate records that help substantiate your injuries and damages.

Costs and Fees Associated With a Lawsuit

Preparation for a trial can be long and exhausting. Attorneys must prepare documents, research legal issues, correspond with other attorneys and the court, maintain contact with lawyers, communicate with witnesses and healthcare professionals, take depositions and prepare legal arguments for trial. Other individuals may assist your attorney with your case, such as paralegals, associates and legal secretaries. Your Arizona personal injury attorney may enter into a contingent fee agreement with you, which may include an additional percentage if your case goes to trial. Your attorney likely disclosed this information when he or she first accepted your case.
