Many people are afraid of a Workers’ Compensation trial. They settle their case because they do not want to testify.

There is really nothing to fear. True, you will have to speak in public but it is not that painful for several reasons:

  • There is no jury. Only the Arbitrator or judge makes the decision in your case.
  • Few people will be present. The Arbitrator, the court reporter, the insurance company attorney, your attorney and yourself, and any witnesses.
  • You will go through the potential questions with your lawyer before the trial.
  • The Arbitrator wants to hear your story. That is the Arbitrator’s job. Just tell the truth and it will be fine.

I would be glad to talk with you about your case and whether you should go trial or not. Call Illinois Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371
