If you have a lawsuit, made it through trial and then a jury awarded you damages, congratulations! You have won! What comes next?
The answer is the appeals process. In our judicial system, parties have the right to appeal the decision of the trial courts. Even appellate decisions are appealed "all the way to the Supreme Court". Although most cases never make it to trial, those that do often remain in the process for months, if not years after the jury reaches a verdict.
Most plaintiffs do not understand that when they "win" their case at trial, that is not the end of the road. Unfortunately for these plaintiffs, a long often demanding process awaits them and will almost always test their patience and resolve.
For these reasons, plaintiff attorneys often try to persuade their clients to take an offered settlement amount even though the amount is less than expected and less than what is deserved. These attorneys understand the lawsuit game, how it is played and what effect it will ultimately have on the plaintiff.
However, frequently an offer is not made or an offer is so small that there is no way a plaintiff can accept. This is where the attorney really earns his/her money. It is often said that a case which goes to trial is not a good case. In other words, if the defendant (insurance company) wants to take on the risk of a substantial award given by a jury, then chances are the defendant is fond of his/her chances.
Of course, cases are tried and "won" everyday and awards substantially larger and smaller are routinely given to litigants in the judicial process. However, during those trials, many issues may arise giving defense attorneys the ability to appeal the verdict and delay the payout. While some of these arguments have merit, that is of little consolation to the injured party. Expenses keep coming and while you wait for your case to go through the appeal, your creditors want to be paid. Confronted by the financial pressure, plaintiffs sometimes accept a settlement far lower than the verdict simply because they want "pay the bills" or they simply want to move on.
