Taking Your Case to Trial

Tough Litigation from an Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer

Were you seriously injured in a car accident or another type of accident? If so, it might be necessary to have your matter settled through a trial. Some injury victims enter into lawsuits because they have already tried filing insurance claims and have found that the insurance companies involved in their cases were unwilling to offer fair settlements.

Others enter into lawsuits as a first resort, skipping the claims process due to the fact that litigation may be a better option for them. If you are facing a possible personal injury trial, you will need the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer. A great amount of strategy, preparation and legal knowledge is needed in order to carry out a successful lawsuit. Both the pre-trial and the trial processes are extremely complex, with each step having major influence over the outcome of the case.

Because of our more than 30 years of cumulative legal experience at Kalka & Baer LLC, we know firsthand what is needed to carry out a successful personal injury lawsuit and trial.

Support for Each Step of the Personal Injury Trial Process

Here are a few of the stages that must be carried out in personal injury litigation:

Filing the Complaint—In order to start a personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff (who is the injury victim) or his or her attorney must file a complaint. This is a document that formally states the allegations against the other party, known as the defendant, and explains the damages that the plaintiff suffered. It is vital that the complaint is written correctly, and also filed and served on the defendant properly.

Discovery Process—In this stage of the pre-trial process, both parties in the lawsuit are required to exchange certain that is relevant to the lawsuit. The discovery process might include the submission of certain records and other documents, physical evidence, testimony, answers to written questions, etc. In a personal injury case, this is an important step for obtaining information that could potentially be used as evidence in the trial. The discovery process also involves the taking of depositions, or recorded statements that involve the parties verbally answering question while on oath.

Trial—As for the actual trial itself, the plaintiff will need to be able to effectively argue his or her case in court. With the help of a knowledgeable lawyer, the injury victim might be able to do this through witness testimony; testimony from accident reconstruction experts, medical experts or other types of experts; evidence such as accident reports, the defendant's driving record, photographs, video surveillance, etc.; and much more.

Personal injury lawsuits in this state should only be handled by trained legal professionals who fully understand Georgia law and the state's litigation procedures.
