Lawsuits Require Time, Energy and Constitutional Fiber

Comments Off

Mediations are hard work. But nothing like going to trial. Or the commitment of time, energy and expense that goes into preparing for trial.

A signficant amount of effort is required to successfully mediate a case. But the effort expended at mediation pales in comparison to the work necessary to take a case to trial.

If your case can’t be settled then you have to be prepared to do the following: work with your attorney to prepare for your deposition and IME; review all pleadings (including motions, responses, replies, etc.) and help your attorney prepare declarations; sit for your deposition, attend at least one IME, meet with a vocational counselor and probably attend a physical capacities examination; and attend trial (which can last up to several weeks).
