The Jury's Role in a Truck Accident Case
When we represent a client in a personal injury or wrongful death claim against a negligent truck driver, we always seek, whenever possible, to settle the case out of court. Why do we do this? Out-of-court settlements are both faster and easier for everyone involved. This does not, however, mean that we always seek the easy way out.
If the insurance company refuses to pay our client a fair amount for the accident claim, we do not hesitate to take the case to trial. Our attorneys are proven litigators with a confident command of courtroom procedure, and, to use the words of a former client, "When Bob Pahlke speaks, the jury listens!"
We Believe in the Jury System
At The Robert Pahlke Law Group, we have a deep and abiding faith in the role that juries play in the legal process. Juries serve to protect the public interest by making a fair trial more likely in any given case. Rather than depending on the opinion of a single judge, referring the case to a jury of 6 or 12 citizens brings balance to the verdict by involving the viewpoints of multiple people. A jury, as a cross-section of the local community, ideally decides a case according to the societal opinions of those who live alongside the plaintiff and defendant.
In the event that a case proceeds to a jury trial, it is up to the attorneys representing each side to convince the members of the jury to rule in their clients' favor. This can include introducing evidence and witnesses, cross-examining witnesses, and making compelling and persuasive arguments, all with the goal of leading the jurors to a certain conclusion. In
truck accident cases, there are two primary goals: to convince the jury that the truck driver is at fault for causing the accident and to demonstrate to the jury why they should award generous monetary damages for the plaintiff's losses. In other words, it is up to the jury not only to decide whether you win your case, but also to decide how much you win. Our attorneys have a proven track record of success in arguing cases before juries, and we have helped our clients win millions of dollars in damages.
Let Us Tell Your Story!
Our job as trial lawyers is to fully understand your story so that we can tell it to the jury in a compelling manner. In order to achieve this goal, we take the time to get to know every one of our clients, because if we do not truly appreciate how your injuries have affected your life, then how can we relay this to the jury? The first step is to meet with us face to face for a free consultation, during which you can discuss your concerns and receive answers to all your questions.
