Will my slip and fall case go to trial?
I recently had a slip and fall client of mine ask me, “Are we going to have to go to trial on this case?” First of all, the main reason that we would have to go to a trial is if the insurance company is not fairly and reasonably evaluating the case and offering us an amount that is just, in light of the circumstances and the facts that they have. If that happens, we will try the case, and we will ask a jury to do the right thing because the insurance company won’t. The way to avoid trial is by being prepared, not only through preparation, depositions, and discovery, but by preparing you to be ready for any depositions that occur. That includes making sure you know what’s coming on a cross examination from the insurance company. We also prepare any medical providers for testimony at trial, thoroughly, and any experts that may have to be hired as well, so by the time we get to court, the insurance company will see we’re ready.
