The Law is an Adversarial System

October 2018

In the United States, the legal system is an adversarial system.  This means that legal advocates take positions for their clients and make arguments on their behalf.  The legal advocates also present evidence in court to either prove their case or defend their case.  A neutral party which is a judge or a jury hears the evidence and makes a decision.

Even the most straightforward personal injury claim is subject to the adversarial system.  Immediately after a car collision, the parties take sides.  To help them compete in the adversarial process, the insurance company employs investigators, adjusters, biomechanical engineers, nurse consultants, doctors and medical reviewers.  The insurance company will do their best to shade the facts to their favor.  To level the playing field, you will want an experienced personal injury team on your side.
