If you are injured in an accident through no fault of your own you may have enough evidence to file a personal injury lawsuit against whoever was responsible. Consult with an attorney who is familiar with the fundamentals surrounding personal injury to make sure that the circumstances of your case will apply.
If he believes that your claim is substantial your attorney will begin taking action by interviewing the doctor who treated you after the accident and can attest to the fact that your injuries were serious enough to incur substantial medical bills. He may also share his opinion that further medical care or rehabilitation may well be necessary. An expert medical witness can confirm that your injuries have affected your job performance and that you suffered considerable loss of salary as a result.
There will be a good chance that negotiations may lead to an out of court settlement that will satisfy your petition. If an agreement can be reached an official legal document will be drawn up and signed by all the parties involved including lawyers and insurance representatives. Once this is done any further claims for compensation on your part will be invalid. That is why it is so important for you as the injured party to be represented by an experienced personal injury attorney.
If a fair settlement cannot be reached your case will proceed to civil court where both sides will call witnesses and enter motions. The judge will most likely encourage the continued attempt at negotiation outside of the courtroom but if all else fails evidence will be presented to a jury who will determine liability.
Your attorney will advise you to carefully consider the advantages of settling your case out of court because if the jury members rule against you you may wind up with nothing. If the jury finds in your favor they will then determine the amount of restitution that you are entitled to.
