What is the role of a jury in a personal injury lawsuit in Georgia?
When you file a lawsuit for a personal injury you suffered, your attorney will meet with you and explain your options. Generally, you have two ways of reaching a conclusion in your case: through a settlement with the other party (or parties) or via verdict reached through a trial. There are pros and cons to both options, and the best route for you is a matter to be addressed with your attorney.
Should you and your East Point car accident attorney decide to proceed with a jury trial, which in all honesty does not occur often, the jury will play a role in whether or not you are awarded any compensation. They will listen to the evidence presented by your attorney and the attorney for the defendant(s), and then they will deliberate and decide whether or not the defendant(s) is/are liable for the damages you have incurred. Deliberations can last for a few hours or weeks and are held in private.
The jury’s role in your personal injury lawsuit if you go to trial is extensive. Twelve strangers will decide if you are able to recover for your damages. This uncertainty is one of the reasons why most personal injury lawsuits are settled through negotiation and mediation.
