You will become the “plaintiff” and the party you are claiming responsible for your injury becomes the “defendant.” The personal injury attorneys from both sides (and, potentially, an attorney for the defendant’s insurance company) will gather facts, hold depositions (which are written or recorded investigative questions while under oath), and exchange or share this information between each party through a process called “discovery.”
Many personal injury cases are settled after the discovery phase without the need to go to trial. Very few personal injury cases actually make it to trial (American Bar Association, www.americanbar.org).
Myrthill’s Law, P.A. is dedicated to our clients. We work diligently to ensure you receive the best possible outcome for your personal injury case. If the defendant refuses a fair settlement for your damages, we are prepared to uphold your rights in a court of law.
