We are all one traffic light away from tragedy. Anybody can become a personal injury victim at any moment. Sometimes, accidents can’t be avoided. We often hear the phrase “it was just an accident,” but accidents are usually the result of someone not paying attention or being careless. In the legal world we call it “being negligent.” If someone’s negligence has caused harm to you or a loved one, they should be held accountable.

How Do Lawsuits Work?
The fact is, litigation under the direction of attorney can often be prolonged, expensive and complex. That is why the legal team at Mike Walker Law will first try to negotiate a settlement outside of court. However, sometimes the only way to achieve justice and get the compensation you deserve is to take your case through the court system. That is why when hiring a lawyer for your injury case it is wise to consider the trial experience of the attorney and law firm.
A lawsuit begins with the filing of a summons and complaint. From there, an Answer will be filed by the adverse party. Both sides will then engage in a discovery process to learn the relevant facts. Surprisingly, not all evidence will be admissible at trial. For example, if you have been in an auto accident,the jury will not be allowed to be told who received the ticket or that the other driver had insurance. The traffic report will not even be allowed into evidence. What is and is not admissible depends on the Rules of Evidence which Mike Walker is well experienced with.
Over 90 percent of cases will be settled before reaching the trial stage. However, Attorney Mike Walker prepares every case as if it is going to trial. This enables him to put you in the best possible position to maximize your recovery.
