Top 5 Things You Need To Know Before You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you’ve suffered an injury due to an accident, maybe you’ve been bitten by a dog, you’re a victim of a slip and fall accident or car accident many questions might be running through your head. One of the questions might be; what’s the best way to proceed for the responsible party to cover the financial losses you’ve suffered because of the accident?

Getting the right lawsuit information is vital for the victim. If you’ve never been involved in a personal injury lawsuit, you may not know the dos and the don’ts. But the best thing would be to hire the services of a personal injury lawyer to help you with the case and ensure that you obtain the most favorable results.

Here are some of the things you should know before you file a personal injury claim.

1. A personal injury lawsuit is designed to protect you
If you've suffered from an injury you are likely to have unpaid medical bills to settle which can lead to loss of income and emotional stress. A lawsuit is designed to safeguard the rights and financial aspects of injury victims. With the help of a lawyer, you will be able to recover the amount of compensation you deserve.

2. You’ll recover more if you hire a personal injury lawyer
Generally, people who hire a personal injury lawyer after an accident recover three times as much settlement than those who don’t. A personal injury lawyer knows how to value claims and they have the ability to negotiate a favorable settlement. Moreover, if the insurance company is not willing to negotiate, a personal injury lawyer can present your case in front of a judge and jury in the strongest terms possible.

3. You should contact a personal lawyer as soon as possible
A personal injury lawyer can protect you from making costly mistakes such as failing to document your injury or revealing too much information to the wrong party. The lawyer will also walk with you through the challenging legal process and contact the insurance company on your behalf. In addition to that, contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as the injury occurs makes it easy for you to recall all the specific details about your injury, and still have witness information, relevant receipts, and other crucial evidence.

4. You shouldn’t sign anything before consulting a lawyer
An adjuster may convince you not to hire a lawyer, but you should remember that insurance companies are out there to make profits and they may not have your best interest in mind. Most of these insurance companies prefer that you deal with them directly so that they offer you less compensation than your case is worth. That’s why you shouldn’t sign anything before you talk to a personal injury lawyer.

5. Personal injury cases can be settled in two ways
Personal injury cases can be settled either out of court or on trial. A settlement is an agreement between the victim and the responsible party as to how much compensation the victim will receive. Here are the benefits of settling the personal injury lawsuit out of court.

On the other hand, a verdict is a decision made by the judge or jury following court proceedings. So even if a settlement cannot be reached, your lawyer still has a possible way to recover your compensation.
