Car Accident Attorney Duties During Trial 

While it is true that most personal injury compensation claim settles outside of the court, some situations will differ, and your lawyer will have no option but to take the matter to court. Often, court sessions take long and are the least preferred today but should your suit, reach trial; your lawyer will do the following, mostly on your behalf. 

Filing Complaint

A personal injury lawsuit starts with the filing of the complaint. This is a legal document listing your legal arguments, the facts supporting those legal arguments, and what you demand in relief. After the lawyer files the complaint and serves it on the defendant (the person you’re suing), the defendant will respond to your complaint.

Discovery of Facts

This is the litigation stage, where the two sides exchange information that might serve as evidence during a trial. In most personal injury cases, discovery will consist of depositions, requests for documents, and interrogatories, and the process can take months to complete.

Trial Time

This is the time where your car accident lawyer does most of the hard work. For example, they can file various pre-trial motions to keep the defendant from using a piece of evidence against you.
