What is the Personal Injury Claim Process?

On Behalf of | Jan 13, 2015 | Uncategorized

A personal injury claim usually begins after someone suffers an injury, whether it is from a slip and fall accident or by a defective product.

Accident and personal injury lawsuits can take many forms, but the basic stages of a personal injury claim usually remain constant. First and foremost, there must be proof that someone suffered an injury, and that the injury was caused as a result of another individual’s negligence or intentionally.

Although an injury claim may be settled directly through an insurer, a personal injury attorney can help you determine what your legal options are. If your claim has merit, the attorney may represent you and help you fight for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

When you meet with an attorney, you will provide them with information on how the injury occurred, facts about your medical treatment, potential witnesses and more. Before a lawsuit is filed, a demand letter is open sent to the party at-fault or their insurer. In the letter, liability and damage issues will be outlined along with the presentation of a particular amount of money to resolve the case early without going through a lawsuit. If an agreement cannot be solidified, a lawsuit is filed.

Fact-Find and Discovery Period

Before going to trial, both parties will work to gather evidence, interview potential witnesses, hire experts and work to uncover all relevant facts and documents needed. During this time your lawyer may sit down with you to discuss the accident, your injuries, how you’re feeling, if the injury is affecting your job, etc. Personal injury claim questions can range from broad to specific, such as what type of clothing you were wearing when the incident occurred. It is important that your attorney receives only the facts, so always be honest with them.
