Key Steps in a Personal Injury Case

Posted by Michael G. Butash | Sep 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

Personal Injury cases are among the most popular types of civil cases that lawyers have to represents their clients for. An individual may have a case if someone has caused them bodily harm or emotional distress as a result of their own negligence. With a personal injury attorney, New Port Richey residents may be eligible to receive some amount of monetary compensation for their distress. But winning a personal injury case is not as easy as showing a judge your personal injuries. There are a few different steps to complete before you would be finished with your case.

Investigations Phases

Although it would be nice to avoid a lengthy process, unfortunately no one is going to take someone's word based on a personal injury claim. There needs to be a decent amount of evidence such as pictures and doctors bills to be considered by a personal injury attorney. New Port Richey residents should know that this early phase of their case is called the investigation phase. Depending on the type of personal injury you have sustained, lawyers and attorneys will be looking for specific information or evidence for your case.

The Appeal Phase

After a judge has determined what they think is a fair, one side may not like the outcome of their trial, and at this point, they would have the opportunity to appeal the case. With a personal injury attorney, New Port Richey residents should be aware that an appeal is not always the same as the trial that they have just experienced. It is possible to be on the losing side of a trial for a personal injury case and still win an appeal on another day. When it comes to court cases, it not who wins first, but rather who is the client that wins in the end.
