How to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Maybe you were in a no-fault car accident with a distracted drive. Maybe you were injured after falling on a puddle of water inside your local shopping mall. Regardless as to how you sustained your injury, if the injury was caused due the neglect of another party, you may be able to seek damages through a personal injury lawsuit.

There are many types of personal injury cases

Personal injury litigation covers more than car / motorcycle accidents and slip and fall incidents. People who have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, have suffered defamation as a result of libel and/or slander or have been bitten by an unleashed dog may be eligible to file a claim.

Assault and battery victims may also benefit from filing a personal injury case. If you have questions as to whether you might be able to seek damages, it’s best to contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your case.

You should not go at it alone

One of the biggest concerns people have when it comes to hiring an attorney relates to cost. After all, if you’re unable to work and your disability payments aren’t enough to cover your expenses, you may be struggling to pay your bills. The good news is that most personal injury law firms take cases on contingency. When you hire a lawyer on contingency, you won’t be required to pay any fees unless your case is successful.

It’s also worth noting that an experienced attorney can often help you get a much larger settlement than you’d be able to get on your own. The defendant’s insurance company isn’t concerned about your bills, pain or suffering. They’re concerned about protecting their bottom line.

If you try to negotiate a settlement by yourself, the insurance company will try to lowball you, and they’ll try to take advantage of the fact that you likely need money fast.
