Going to trial in a civil case requires parties to take some level of risk. Whenever something goes in front of a jury, the possible range of outcomes is wide. This can be scary for people who have legitimate claims they’re relying on. Though lawyers recognize the risks of going to trial, many are taking steps to reduce the variance in litigation. Simply arguing the facts and leaving things to chance is not good enough to some lawyers. Many are reaching out to expert witnesses to help them seal the deal when things head to trial.
