This blog breaks down a roadmap of typical stages so you can prepare mentally as your physical recovery continues.

Personal Injury Legal Roadmap

Assessing If You Have a Valid Case

The first step is determining if the accident and harm done provide grounds for a personal injury claim. Key deciding factors include:

  • Establishing another party acted negligently such as a reckless driver, property owner failing safety duties, manufacturer distributing defective products etc.
  • Proving directly relating your monetary damages and losses to the accident such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earnings capacity etc.
  • Showing the impact on your life has been significant and will be long lasting
  • An experienced personal injury lawyer can analyze your unique situation and advise if a case showing provable losses and liability for compensation exists.

Attempting Initial Settlement Outside Court

Hiring an attorney on a contingency basis gives you the flexibility to pursue your claim without the unnecessary burden of legal fees – especially while you are unsure about the outcome. It’s the attorney’s job to fight for their own compensation as well as yours.

Attorneys can handle the attempts to come to a fair settlement by communicating with the other party with offers and demands that you and your lawyer agreed upon. This is often the ideal route for the other party to avoid drawn out legal battles and reduce the time and stress of relying on the court’s decision.

Ultimately If the negotiations outside of court are not ideal or fair according to the claimant, the process sets the stage for a potential trial to seek the compensation and damages that are entitled.

Taking Your Case to Court If Needed

  • Lawsuits become necessary if settlement offers do not reach the need for covering the damages
  • Litigation process can last months to years but speeds resolution
  • Attorney handles burdensome tasks like evidence gathering, filings, questioning witnesses etc.
  • Judge or jury decides financial compensation you receive in the end

Having knowledgeable guidance gives injury victims the best chance to seek justice and fight for the compensation that’s entitled based on the severity of the injury, long term care needed and pain and suffering, like loss of earning potential.
