What is the Process Once You Have Agreed to Take My Case?

What is the Process Once You Have Agreed to Take My Case?

Usually when we take a case, we do not initially go into the court system.  Client’s often call and ask how their court case is coming.  However, usually the attorney will wait until a person’s medical treatment is stabilized or complete before taking steps to resolve the claim.  Once the medical treatment is complete the attorney will gather all relevant documents and often submit what is called a demand letter to the insurance company.  This is all done outside of the court system and will not require court appearances or to be in front of a judge.

The insurance company may take weeks or months to review the demand and then will make a determination if they are going to offer a settlement or deny the claim.  If the claim cannot be resolved with the insurance adjuster for whatever reason, both the attorney and the client may decide that a lawsuit should be filed.

Once a lawsuit is filed, the case will be in front of the specific judge in the court system who will give a scheduling order as to when the discovery (depositions, exchange of information, etc.) should be complete and when a trial will take place.

Many times a case will be resolved while in litigation but after discovery.  Other times a case will have to proceed to trial.  Usually this will be a jury trial where a jury of peers will ultimately decide the fate of the case after hearing all the evidence.

  • Dear Mr. Mindell,
    Your slogan states: “Experience Dedication Success”. I believe in my heart, strongly added to that should have been, “Honest Fair Integrity”. For those are the finest principles in you, and that was my experience of what you most importantly instilled and guide your practice on. Thank you so much. I do so respect you.
