Personal injury cases are disputes that arise when a person suffers harm from an accident/injury, that somebody else may be legally responsible for that harm.
Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury case can become formalized through civil court proceedings that seek to find others at fault through a court judgment, or disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.
A personal injury case starts when an individual files a civil complaint against a person, corporation, business, or government agency. This complaint alleges that they acted carelessly or irresponsibly in connection with an accident or injury that caused harm.
Most disputes over fault for an injury are resolved through informal settlement. Those personally involved in the dispute, their insurers, and attorneys work to reach a settlement. These negotiations are followed by a written agreement in which both sides agree to forgo further lawsuits, choosing to resolve the matter through payment of a mutually agreeable sum of money.
