Step 4 of a Lawsuit: Trial
We have finally reached the trial step of a lawsuit. While this is the step that most of our clients are familiar with, it is important to note that trials are extremely rare in Michigan. In fact, approximately only 2% of cases proceed to trial. This can be attributed to many reasons, including the fact that both sides must incur significant costs and the fact that juries are highly unpredictable. If your case does proceed to trial though, you can rest assured that we will remain in close contact with you as we prepare for it.
During the preparation period, we will be doing many things, including investigation, record collection, discovery, legal motions, technical consultation, and continuing settlement negotiations. Our office will do everything we can to make sure you have the most compelling case at trial.
We are almost at the end of our steps of a lawsuit series. The last step after trial is the damages recovery & attorney fees step. Check back here to read more about this soon.
