BECAUSE THE RESULTS OBTAINED IN SPECIFIC CASES DEPEND ON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE, PAST CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN FUTURE CASES UNDERTAKEN BY A LAWYER OR LAW FIRM.
A personal injury lawsuit can be pursued if you have been harmed by another’s careless, reckless or intentional acts. For example, a personal injury claim may arise after an accident caused by a distracted driver or an injury caused by a negligent medical professional. In some cases, a claim may be made based on injuries that were caused by a defectively designed, manufactured or marketed product.
Your ability to recover compensation will depend on a variety of factors, including:
The damages typically sought in a personal injury lawsuit are:
In most cases, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed within two years from the date of injury. This is called the statute of limitations. However, exceptions to this rule may apply in some cases, which can allow for either a shorter or longer time period.
A personal injury claim typically is first presented to the at-fault party’s insurance company in settlement negotiations. A case must be prepared for these negotiations as if it was going to trial. If the insurance company fails to provide a fair and reasonable settlement offer, a case may proceed to trial before a jury. However, even after a case goes to trial, it may still be resolved through a settlement.
Once a settlement or verdict is obtained, any claims to the recovery – called “liens” – will need to be addressed. For instance, there may be a Workers’ Compensation lien or healthcare lien on your recovery.
