Will I Need to Appear in Court for My Victorville Personal Injury Car Accident?

Courtrooms are intimidating to most people and understandably so! If you have never had a reason to spend any time in a courtroom and are not involved in the legal field then you may not know much about how a legal case is actually tried. Unfortunately, the fear of having to testify at a trial often leads victims of a personal injury accident case to shy away from pursuing the compensation to which they are legally entitled. According to founding attorney Emery Ledger of Ledger & Associates-Victorville, many victims are hesitant to demand the compensation they deserve for injuries they have suffered because they are concerned about the possibility of needing to appear in court and testify at a trial. Naturally, each case presents a unique set of facts and circumstances but the attorneys at Ledger & Associates-Victorville is able to settle approximately 95% of all personal injury accidents cases handled by the firm without ever needing to enter a courtroom.

Your auto accident attorney’s job starts the minute you retain his services. He will typically look at two main issues in the case – negligence and damages. Negligence is a legal term that refers to responsibility or blame in the accident. Damages is another legal term that addresses the injuries suffered by the victim. An experienced Victorville personal injury attorney such as the team at Ledger & Associates will assess both issues at your first meeting in an attempt to determine whether you have a compensable personal injury accident case. The predominant reasons why a case cannot be settled outside of a courtroom are because the defendant refuses to accept that he was negligent or because the parties cannot agree on the amount of damages due the victim. The personal injury lawyers at Ledger & Associates-Victorville has over a decade of experience handling personal injury accident cases which is why they are able to acquire a favorable out of court settlement for the vast majority of the clients they represent.

Of course, not every case can be settled favorably outside of the courtroom. In some cases the defendant, despite evidence to the contrary, may continue to insist that he was not negligent. In other cases the defendant may admit negligence but be unwilling to compensate the victim in an amount that is fair and representative of the injuries she has suffered. In either case, a trial may become necessary. If your case is one of the rare cases that requires a trial, don’t panic! You will have the entire team at Ledger & Associates behind you with a nationally recognized attorney at your side every step of the way. The team will prepare you for your trial so that you know what to expect and make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Although a trial is not necessary in most cases, if your case requires a trial then the team will take your fight to the courtroom with you.
