Insurance Company Denied Fault?
One of the most frustrating aspects of dealing with a personal injury claim is if the insurance company denies fault. They may try to blame-shift onto the victim, claiming that the injured person somehow contributed to the accident. Or they may try to use some technicality to wiggle out of compensating the injured party. Fortunately, even if the at-fault insurance company denies responsibility, the injured person still has one more option – a jury of their peers. This jury is the ultimate arbiter in any conflict. A personal injury lawyer can examine the facts of your case and work to convince a jury that you should be compensated for your injuries.
This right to a jury trial is actually fundamental to the American justice system and is built in to our Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers knew just how important it was for the citizenry to have a civil justice system available to decide disputes. Therefore every person has the right to a trial by jury to decide a dispute.
A personal injury lawyer can examine the facts of your case to determine if a jury trial is warranted. If so, they will aggressively fight to get the men and women on that jury to side with you. If the insurance company denies fault, the jury will not only decide fault in a case, they will also assign a particular award. There is no limit to the amount a jury can return for the injured (although if the award is especially egregious, the defendant could appeal the amount). If you have suffered an injury in a car crash, slip and fall, or other negligent action, an attorney can help.
