Will I have to testify in Court?

Yes, if the case goes to Court. However, as indicated above, the vast majority of my cases are resolved prior to filing a lawsuit. Basically, a thorough early investigation and careful monitoring of the insurance adjuster will build a strong foundation that discourages the defendant from delaying the case. If the case does proceed towards a hearing, then it generally is resolved in a mediation or arbitration. These are new expedited procedures conducted by a retired judge or practicing attorney. The hearing usually takes about two to three hours as opposed to four or five days for a jury trial. Keep in mind that some cases still proceed to a full trial but they are clearly in the minority.
