In some cases, your Louisiana car accident attorney may be able to find information that will prove your personal injury claim beyond any doubt or provide enough evidence to convince the other party that a settlement would be more beneficial than allowing the case to progress to trial.
If this occurs, then the next step may one of the following:
- Resolution Before Trial: These include various court motions including a motion to dismiss your claim, a summary judgment (if the facts involved are not disputed), or a default judgment (if the other party does not respond to answer your complaint).
- Settlement Out of Court: Sometimes referred to as Resolution Before Trial settlement, this step occurs when all parties reach a satisfactory agreement before trial even begins.
If your personal injury case does go to trial, other steps will be followed that will address the trial process, the receipt or payment of money awarded, and the appeals process. Your Louisiana personal injury attorney will keep you informed as this process continues.
