If you were hurt as a result of a third party’s negligence, your claim may go to court. This video explains what happens during a trial. There are two different types of trials: bench and jury trials. In a bench trial, a judge decides liability without help from the jury.
A trial begins with opening statements from both sides. Then, each party’s lawyer will call witnesses and present evidence to the court. After lawyers have had a chance to cross-examine each other’s witnesses, they will make closing arguments. Then, the judge or jury will deliberate and determine a final verdict.
