The Hard Road that Can Lead to Success
Initially, your Texas personal injury attorney will investigate your accident thoroughly, then file appropriate claims with the defendant (or defendants’) insurance companies. Many times these companies will deny your claim out-of-hand. Then your legal counsel shows them the quality of that evidence. If it is compelling enough, good-faith negotiations might begin which could produce the rightful compensation from each defendant’s insurance company. When that happens, you are able to avoid an emotional (and expensive) trial.
But if the insurance company refuses to settle, then you have to take them to civil court where your attorney must argue the merits of your case, and the compensation you deserve in front of a jury. No one likes a trial because you never can tell what a jury might do or think. Juries are composed of citizens who, for some reason or the other, weren’t able to avoid their obligation as a citizen. You know what you think when you see that jury notice in the mail. They, like you, can think of a million things you would rather do than sit in a courtroom and listen to a bunch of lawyers argue. For that reason alone, you can’t trust juries to do what you hope they will: what you think they should do. But neither can the defendants either.
Settlements can be agreed-to up to the time the jury renders a verdict. So the stronger your case and the more compelling your attorney presents the facts in court, the better the chance the defendant, their attorneys and the insurance company who is paying for this trial will see reason and settle while they have a chance. Or it will go all the way to jury verdict before you win your damage award.
