What Comes Next if We Lose Our Case?
Your Stamford wrongful death lawyer will have done everything possible to win your case at trial. However, if your case is lost, he will discuss with you the possibility of appealing your case. Because the appeal process can end up being very expensive, your Stamford wrongful death lawyer will use his legal experience to determine if an appeal is appropriate in your case.
Is Settlement Still Possible after Losing?
If you lose your case at trial, the probability of obtaining a settlement is slight. In rare instances, an insurance company might try to circumvent an appeal by offering a very nominal settlement amount. However, your Stamford wrongful death attorney will advise that concentrating on winning your case is your best plan of attack. Your chances of winning are good if you are well prepared for trial, and if liability clearly rests on the other party. In most cases, justice will prevail.
If We Win, when Will I Receive the Money?
The results of a favorable verdict will usually take anywhere from a few weeks to over a month to be finalized. Assuming the defense does not file an appeal, all the court costs, attorneys’ fees, deductions and interest will need to be figured out before the final figure is determined.
