Should I Go to Trial? - Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. - Jackson, Mississippi
When many people envision a personal-injury case, they imagine going to trial and pleading before a judge or jury. The truth, however, is that the vast majority of these cases settle out of court. Unfortunately, many accident victims settle for an amount that is far below what they deserve. This is where a Jackson personal-injury attorney can help. An attorney lawyer from Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. can gather evidence to quantify your damages and help you pursue the maximum compensation. This money can pay for health-care costs, lost wages and other damages. Call us today at (601) 869-0696 to schedule a consultation. Of all the cases we take, only about 5 percent end up in litigation, and of those, about half of 1 percent go to a jury trial. Our goal is to recover the money that you deserve without the need to go to trial. This ultimately saves money for our clients because they avoid extra legal fees, expert witness fees and litigation costs. Despite this, we treat each case as if it will go to trial, and we demonstrate the merits of the case by gathering thorough evidence. This may include documents such as medical records and police reports, photos from the accident scene, witness testimonies, expert reports and independent medical examinations. If a case involves a serious injury and the defendant has a large insurance policy, then the case is more likely to go to trial.
