Do Most Livingston Auto Accident Cases Go To Court?
Most Livingston auto accident and personal injury accident cases get resolved without going to court. Other cases have to be fought through the court.
In Merced, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Merced County Courts. In 1998, all Merced County Trial Courts were unified to form the Merced County Superior Court.
This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting Merced County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.
Currently, Livingston auto accident and injury cases are heard in a courthouse located in Merced. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation.
