Many types of legal matters are handled in civil court. One type is a personal injury claim. When you are injured due to the negligence of another person or entity, you can opt to file a lawsuit that seeks compensation for damages. This can help you work toward ensuring that you aren't the person who is financially responsible for the effects of the accident.
There are a few types of accidents that might lead to you file this type of claim. These may involve a car or semitruck wreck, pedestrian accident, premises liability case, product liability situation or medical malpractice. If you suffer a severe injury as the result of the negligence of another person, you should learn what options you have for seeking compensation.
People might think that these cases aren't worth the time. They don't realize that seeking compensation can sometimes be about more than just getting money. In some instances, the victim files a claim just to let the person know that their actions weren't acceptable. This is often the case in drunk driving, distracted driving or slip-and-fall accidents. We can help you to determine your goals and work toward finding a resolution avenue for the matter.
Not all personal injury cases go to trial. Sometimes, they are handled through negotiations. The settlement process is used in many cases, and it can be much faster and less costly than going through a trial. We can help you find out what might be possible in your case.
