How Does an Arizona Personal Injury Lawsuit that Goes to Trial End?

By Breyer Law Offices on February 22, 2010

The aftermath of any kind of accident is often traumatic for those involved. When another person’s negligence causes someone to suffer personal injury, the injured victim may have more legal options than he or she initially realizes. To begin with, when a personal injury lawsuit goes to trial, it usually ends in one of two ways:

  1. Dismissal – Dismissals happen when the judge decides that the personal injury case does not have enough merit to move forward.
  2. Judgment – A judgment is a piece of paper signed by a judge. A judgment occurs after the jury comes back with a verdict, which, contrary to popular opinion, is not final. A judge must issue a judgment based on the jury verdict. Usually, the judgment matches the jury verdict in terms of guilt or innocence and the amount of the damages to be awarded. After the judgment is rendered, the losing party may then decide to appeal the case.
