Stages of a Personal Injury Case (Part B)

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.

Losing my own brother, then my father and sister after long, disabling illnesses just a few months apart drove a career change for me. Before that experience, I never truly understood the place you’re in. I never understood the dramatic impact that receiving (or not receiving) the disability and life insurance benefits you paid for and counted on can have on your life especially when you need to focus on family and healing. What I experienced with my own family now drives the way I view my clients and my work, and I will never forget it!
