Will my bicycle accident case go to trial?
I had a client ask me recently, “Are we going to have to go to trial on this case, or is there a way that we can avoid that?” I told her, as I tell every client, the main reason that we try cases is because the insurance company is not reasonably and fairly evaluating your case and offering what they should offer. If that happens, we’ll try the case and we’ll go ask a jury to do the right thing. The way to avoid having to try a case is by being prepared. We will be thorough in our preparation for depositions and for discovery during the litigation process. Very importantly, we will have you thoroughly prepared for any depositions. If it comes to it and you have to testify in court, you’ll be prepared, not only for talking about the facts and your injuries in that bicycle case, but also what sort of cross examination may be coming from the insurance company. We’ll also have medical providers prepared and ready to go as well as any experts that we have to hire. If we do have to try that case, the insurance company will see that if they’re not going to do the right thing, then we’re going to be ready for a jury to do it for us.
