STEP 2: DEMAND PACKAGE
Once your attorney and his team have evaluated and investigated your claim, he will send to the defendants a demand package, which includes the proposed worth of your case, details of your accident, and descriptions of your injuries, damages, and more.
STEP 3: NEGOTIATION
After the defendant has reviewed your demand package, your attorney will negotiate the worth of your case and try to come to a settlement.
STEP 4: SETTLE OR PROCEED
If the defendant makes an offer you are willing to accept, then your case will settle. If the defendant refuses to pay a reasonable compensation amount, your lawyer will file a lawsuit and continue to fight for the money you’re owed.
STEP 5: FILE A LAWSUIT
Your lawyer will file a lawsuit in court and the defendant will be notified of your decision to take legal action. The defendant is obligated to respond to the lawsuit you file.
STEP 6: PREPARATION
Before your case goes to trial, your Texas truck accident lawyer and the defendant’s attorneys will prepare for court by further investigating your claim, talking to witnesses, and taking depositions. Your attorney will also prepare you for court by telling you what to expect and making sure you understand your role in the process.
STEP 7: TRIAL
When your case goes to court, your attorney and the defendant will have the opportunity to present their sides to a judge and/or jury. After each side is heard, the judge and/or jury will render a decision, called a judgment.
