Most people don't know much about what actually goes on "behind the scenes" of a lawsuit, except for what they have seen in movies or on television. This section provides an overview of the steps involved in a typical case to give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to pursue your case. By learning more about what really goes on, you should have a better idea of whether you actually want to take this type of action and a more realistic expectation about the outcome, procedures and time frame.
