Many Litigants Prefer Swift Dispute Resolution

For those new to the legal process, it can be hard to articulate or understand what their preferred road for resolving a case may be. Thanks to a new study by a UC Davis law professor, litigant's preferences are becoming clearer to attorneys. The study reveals, somewhat unsurprisingly, litigants prefer swift and conclusive methods for dispute resolution to other options that may take longer, or leave the conclusiveness of the proceedings up in the air.

Reasonable Attorneys' Fees in Workers' Compensation Claims

When workers' compensation claims turn into contentious litigation, sometimes the attorneys' fees can end up outweighing the total claim amount. Though this might cause you to wonder, what's the point of the fight, the fact is many workers' compensation statutes allow for successful claimants to recover reasonable attorneys fees incurred in engaging in litigation. Unless the court thoroughly explains why it feels the amount is unreasonable, it should not reduce the award amount.
