How Can the Location, of Where Your Lawsuit Is Filed, Impact Your Personal Injury and Accident Case?

October 30, 2013 | Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a jury trial, there are certain counties in this state that are historically more willing to award money than others. Some counties are historically more conservative in that regard and seem to be more reluctant to award money in personal injury and accident cases. So, if you can, you want to get your case filed in the place that you feel is going to be most favorable to you. Also, the value of your case can be impacted depending on if it is heard by a judge or jury. The judge is going to make critical decisions about evidentiary rulings and which evidence is admitted in the case. Often, judges make critical decisions as to whether or not the case will go forward to trial or whether or not the case will be dismissed. If you can get your case filed and heard before a judge who you think is going to be more favorable, that can certainly make a huge difference. Therefore, your personal injury and accident lawyer and law firm must choose the most favorable venue for your case, when possible.
