What are personal injury cases?

 

 Personal injury cases are legal disputes that come into play when a person is harmed in an accident or injury, and another person might be legally responsible for the harm. The person responsible for the incident will be taken to court and will pay money to the person filing for the personal injury claim. This money can go towards medical bills, pain and suffering, and other medical expenses that might be. 

 

There are two main outcomes of personal injury cases:

 

1) Formal Lawsuit: This is when a private individual, also known as the plaintiff, files a civil complaint against a business, person, or corporation known as the defendant. This is known as filing a lawsuit and means the plaintiff is accusing the defendant of having acted carelessly in connection to the accident.

 

2) Informal Settlement: Most disputes are resolved through an early informal settlement. In this informal settlement, the insurers and attorneys will represent both sides. This settlement usually takes form as a negotiation, where both sides agree on an amount of money, and neither party can further go into a lawsuit. 

 

How long do you have to file a personal injury case?

When a plaintiff is injured, they have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit, this is known as the “statute of limitations.” This period begins when the person is injured or discovers their injury. Statute of limitations is established by state laws and often varies by the type of injury.
