Should you Settle Your Claim or Go to Trial?

Sometimes, the best way to maximize your return in an accident case is to negotiate a settlement.  However, you should never feel that you are pressured to settle a case for less than it’s full value.  If a trial is required to maximize your compensation, we are fully prepared to put your case before a judge or a jury.  The insurance companies and their attorneys know that when we say we are taking a case to trial, we mean business.  Before you enter into a settlement of your claim, consult our office for a free, confidential assessment.

How Do You Know You Have The Right Personal Injury Lawyer?

When you are looking to hire a personal injury attorney to handle your negligence claim, the following questions are essential to ask any prospective attorney:

  1. How much personal injury case experience do they have?
  2. How many personal injury/negligence cases have they handled in their legal career?

When you have been injured in an accident, the first and most important thing you need to do is get well. But that can be difficult when insurance companies and negligent actors refuse to help cover the costs of expensive medical treatment and medication.  Suffering a significant injury can easily keep you from returning to work and enjoying life’s daily activities.  That’s why you need the right legal team to help you get the maximum compensation possible.

In the event that you do not have short or long term disability insurance, covering the costs of every day expenses may prove difficult. Worst of all, bad actors can, and frequently will contact you early and often in an attempt to settle your potential claims for less than their real value.

Our Process

Step 1

Initial Review and Development of Litigation Plan

The client will meet with the attorney to review the current status of the case, develop a plan of action, determine a budget, and formulate a timetable for resolution. The attorney will discuss the client’s specific goals, review any relevant caselaw or statutes related to the litigation and answer the clients questions about the process.

Step 2

Pleadings, Discovery, and Motions

Being party to a lawsuit requires ongoing effort to organize your case through written documents that are submitted to the court and opposing parties. It also may require court appearances to argue pretrial motions. During this stage, we will prepare any pleadings to be submitted to the court, draft discovery requests, responses and objections, issue subpoenas, conduction depositions, and prepare and argue any pretrial motions. This stage typically occupies 70-80% of the total timeline for your case.

Step 3

Trial Preparation and Settlement Negotiations

This stage includes review of all relevant evidence, preparation of any potential witnesses and the formulation of trial strategy. Our experienced staff will assist in the assembly of trial notebooks that include all documents you intend to present at trial. During this stage, settlement negotiations may take place in an effort to resolve your case without a trial if it is possible.

Step 4

Trial

If your case cannot be resolved through negotiation, a trial will be required. Based upon the plan we develop with you, we will present the evidence and witnesses that we have prepared to present your case in the light most favorable to you. Trials can sometimes have unpredictable outcomes. However, when you hire the Reed Law Firm, you can be confident that the evidence, arguments, and testimony you want to have heard will be presented in a coherent, organized, and compelling way to provide you with the best possible opportunity to win your case.

Premises liability case that settled for policy limits. Our client was at a friend’s house helping him move. The screen door from the inside of the garage into the house was held shut with a bungee cord. The client did not see the bungee cord, and opened the door, which released the tension on the bungee cord, and caused it to fly forward into the client’s face. The hook on the end of the bungee cord impaled the client’s eye, causing a complete loss of vision in the impacted eye.
