In the course of your claim, you may be asked to attend a deposition. At this meeting, you answer questions and give recorded statements regarding the facts of your case. The deposition is conducted by the attorney representing the person or business your claim is against, so it is very important to answer truthfully. Consult this page to learn more.
Before you case goes to trial, you and your attorney will try to negotiate with the opposing party in a mediation meeting. This can be an excellent way to save time and money if all parties are willing to negotiate. Your experienced personal injury attorney at the Coye Law Firm can answer any questions you may have regarding a mediation.
An unfortunate reality in today's world is that some personal injury claims are unjustified and done only to get money. Insurance companies or opposing attorneys may hire private detectives to catch a supposedly injured person doing strenuous activity in order to get their claim thrown out. Although there is no need to worry about surveillance if you are injured and follow your doctor's orders, consult this page to learn when surveillance is legal.
Filing a lawsuit for a car accident or other accident claim changes some things. Instead of negotiating a settlement, the fate of the claim is handed to a jury. Each attorney presents the facts, and the jury decides who is at fault and how much money that person needs to pay in an award. Read our article above to learn about jury selection, what the judge tells the jury, and Florida statutes that govern juries.
In some instances, your personal injury claim may need to be settled through arbitration, which proceeds outside of the court, and is decided by an arbitrator rather than a judge. You may have even signed an arbitration clause in a contract or agreement without even realizing it.
