Chicago Litigation Attorney
Litigation is that process that encompasses filing a lawsuit. Many claims do not progress to a trial. However, I have made my living and reputation representing cases that are involved in legal action. Meaning: we have to file a lawsuit, gather all the pertinent information (be it statements, medical records, public records), then take actual depositions or statements under oath of people involved in your incident and build the best case possible. The litigation process is preparing the matter for a jury trial.
When contemplating whether or not to file a lawsuit, there are many factors that should be considered. These include the merits of your claim, any available legal remedies, and the potential financial implications. Additionally, you may want to consider how long it will take to resolve the matter.
Once you have made a decision to file a lawsuit, it is important to assemble all of your evidence in order for an impartial judge or jury to make a fair judgement. This can often involve hiring an attorney who specializes in litigation law. Personal injury attorneys usually work on a contingency basis. This means that the lawyer does not get paid until you get paid.
If we do a good job in the litigation process--if we get the admissions and evidence that we need--then that puts us well on our way of being able to present a good case at trial which would be your ultimate recourse if we can not extract a good settlement from the insurance company.
