If I File a Lawsuit, Do I Have to Testify in Court?

March 11th, 2014 Uncategorized

Many times, people have to file a lawsuit in a case simply to get the attention of an insurance company. Just because you file the lawsuit, doesn’t mean you ultimately have to testify, although that may very well happen. Remember, many times filing a lawsuit is just the beginning of a process. That process may end at some point short of actually sitting in a courtroom and going through a trial.

For example in North Carolina, all cases have what’s called mandatory mediation. That’s a settlement conference that’s held during the workup of the case, and many cases conclude through that mediation process. You don’t necessarily have to testify once you file a lawsuit, although that is certainly something that could happen if your case goes that far. We need to be prepared for that eventuality in every case.

During an unfortunate time of an automobile accident, the team at Daggett Shuler took excellent care of me. Thailer, Joni and Dawn…YOU ROCK!!! Very professional and MOST OF ALL CARING!!! They all reached out to me several times during the course of my accident and even during this PANDEMIC! Thailer made me feel comfortable with discussing my concerns in every aspect of my case. Joni and Dawn were responsive with collecting my paperwork. I recommend that if you need a great attorney, “Start here!” You won’t be disappointed!!!
