Will your slip and fall case go to trial? As Alpharetta slip and fall lawyer Shane Smith explains in this video, most of the time, that is the case.
A lot of times people will say “Shane, I really don’t want to go to trial” or “Why this is so much different than a car accident?” The reason is that most of these Alpharetta slip and fall cases have to go into litigation. Litigation means that we will try to settle the case before we file anything in court.
Most of these cases must be settled before a court; therefore, we actually have to file a lawsuit. This begins the path towards court, but don’t let that frighten you. A lot of these cases will go to mediation once they get past the summary judgment motion, and a vast majority will actually settle out at that time, before actually going before a jury.
