What happens during a personal injury lawsuit?
Your Texas personal injury lawsuit begins with an initial consultation with your lawyer. Most personal injury lawyers, such as our team here at Fears Nachawati, will provide you with free legal advice during this first meeting.
The first meeting is a time for your lawyer to get know the facts of your case. You will tell your lawyer about the accident and show them any documents, such as police reports, that you have.
If your Texas personal injury lawyer decides that you have a good case, the next step is to contact the legal representative of the person or entity responsible for the accident.
In many instances, your case will be settled out of court with no need for a trial. If a settlement cannot be reached, however, your personal injury lawyer will move forward with preparations for trial in accordance with Texas law.
If your personal injury lawsuit goes to trial, there will be a deposition, which is a time for the defendant’s attorney to ask you questions about the accident. Your personal injury lawyer will thoroughly prepare you for the deposition by telling you what questions to expect and going over your answers with you. Your attorney will depose the defendant as well.
The good news for you as the accident victim is that your Texas personal injury lawsuit will generally require very little participation on your part. Your attorney handles all of the paperwork as well as the communications with the party against whom you are bringing the suit.
