How to Prepare if Your Case Is Going to Trial

At Parrish DeVaughn, we work hard to get our clients full compensation without ever stepping foot in a courtroom. And in most cases, insurance companies prefer that. When they know we’re serious about getting settlements, they also prefer avoiding a legal battle and would instead rather write checks to the victims they initially denied.

Unfortunately, not all cases lead to out-of-court settlements. Sometimes, insurance companies refuse to pay. We may have all the evidence in the world that shows our client wasn’t at fault and theirs was, and they still won’t agree to our demands. When that happens, we have no choice but to take them to court.

We’ll Consult You on Every Move We Make

When you called our firm, you knew you needed compensation for your accident-related expenses. After all, you’re facing major medical bills that you can’t afford, especially if you’re too hurt to work. It’s our goal to get you paid fairly for what you’ve gone through.

In many cases, insurance companies offer victims lowball settlements. After a negotiation period, they may increase their offers. After both their initial offer and subsequent offers, we’ll always discuss the amount of money that’s on the table, how it fits into your accident-related expenses, and your options moving forward.

In other words—if you get an offer you like and want to accept it, we’ll support you. But it’s our job to ensure that you’re aware of all the costs you’re facing both now and years down the road. If we believe the insurance company’s offer isn’t enough, we won’t hesitate to recommend more negotiations or even going to court if the insurance company refuses to budge.

We’ll Also Guide You Through the Legal Process

If you and your attorney agree that taking your case to trial is your best option, you may become anxious over the idea of appearing in court. As experienced Oklahoma personal injury lawyers, we know what you’re going through. But don’t forget that we’re representing you, and our representation is backed by many years of successful verdicts.

Simply put—there’s very little you’ll need to worry about in terms of documentation, courtroom procedure, or even what to say with us on your side. We’ll handle all of the legal aspects of the case, including the collection and presentation of evidence, explaining to the jury what happened, and ensuring the other side presents its case fairly.

From the moment we agree to take your case to trial, we’ll start preparing you for what’s to come. In most cases, that just means keeping you up to date on the specifics, including:

  • when and where the court date will be,
  • our strategy for getting your compensation,
  • what to wear when you go to court,
  • when and if you might need to speak,
  • what to say (if necessary),
  • and more.

It’s our goal to make the trial as easy and stress-free for you as possible.

We’re Here to Help Any and Every Way We Can

In personal injury claims, there’s a big difference between getting a settlement and getting a fair settlement. Insurance companies often hand out low-ball settlements at the drop of a hat, especially when they know they can’t win. They hope that victims and their attorneys will choose fast payouts over full compensation.

We know that you want money fast, but we also know you want to be paid in full. If that’s the case, good things come to those who wait, even if it means going to trial. Don’t be intimidated by the process, and take comfort knowing that we’ve got your back at every turn.
