Typically, once a case is settled, documents must be exchanged between both parties of the lawsuit. This process usually takes 30 – 45 days, but can take longer if your case involves special circumstances such as a settlement of a minor or incompetent, which requires court approval.
Yes, no case is ever settled without your expressed consent. Whenever settlement negotiations are initiated by either party you will be informed, and it is only with your full participation, advice, and consent that your case will be settled.
Punitive damages exist to punish or make an example of the wrongdoer for conduct that is intentional, or when the wrongdoer acts in a reckless manner in disregard for the rights of others. The actual payment of punitive damages is rare, and appellate courts frequently cut punitive damage awards down, or simply throw them out. However, the threat of punitive damages can often induce the defense to make an increased settlement.
Compensatory damages compensate the injured person for various kinds of losses or damages. These may also be referred to as actual damages. Compensatory damages include economic damages such as medical bills and lost wages, or non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish or inability to lead a normal life.
During the course of your case, you will most likely have to give a deposition. A deposition is a statement that is given under oath before a certified court reporter. When your deposition is taken one of the lawyers in this office will be there to represent you. Before you attend a deposition, you will be thoroughly prepared days beforehand.
Not always. As your case is developed and prosecuted, there will be various court hearings on legal matters. These hearings normally involve discovery issues such as the court determining what documents must be produced when one side has objected. These type of hearings do not require your attendance or participation. If any court hearing does require you to attend, you will be notified.
