Appeals

While many people believe that a personal injury case involves a trial, most cases typically are resolved in an out of court settlement. On the other hand, many personal injury lawsuits that go to trial are appealed. The attorneys at Jaroslawicz & Jaros are experienced in handling appeals of personal injury cases.

An appeal occurs when one of the parties to the initial action decides that he or she are unhappy with the verdicts issued by the court. In filing an appeal, the party is essentially asking a higher court to review the decision of the lower court and overturn it if it finds that it was unfair in any way. Because an appeal can be based on a number of factors, it requires skillfully drafted paperwork, different from any that the parties may have relied upon during the prior trial. In some cases, an appeal will also require an in person oral argument before a panel of judges.

A successful appeal requires the services of an attorney who has expertise in pursuing cases in the appellate courts. For this reason, if you are seeking to appeal a case, or are defending an appeal, you need a seasoned attorney by your side to protect your rights.
