Accidents happen all the time. Whether it’s from a car crash, slip and fall, or medical malpractice, the victim deserves to be compensated. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident at the fault of someone else, it is important for you to learn about your legal rights to see if you qualify for compensation.

What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Personal injury lawsuits are legal disputes that come about when a victim suffers harm from an injury by the hands of someone else who is legally responsible for the accident. Typically, the responsible person’s insurance company will pay money to the victim for the pain and suffering that is caused (medical expenses).

A personal injury lawyer will represent you in a civil court proceeding so you don’t have to.

Here are the likely two outcomes of a personal injury case:

  • Formal Lawsuit – A private individual (You – the plaintiff) files a civil complaint against the responsible person (business, corporation etc.) alleging that they acted irresponsibly in an accident that caused an injury.
  • Informal Settlement – Most disputes over an injury caused by an accident are resolved through an informal settlement among all participants of both parties. A negotiation is taken place, followed by an agreement by which both parties agree not to take any further action. The matter is resolved immediately through a payment that was agreed upon.

What is a Statute of Limitations?

Victims of an accident have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit. This is called the statute of limitations. Typically, the statute of limitations starts when the victim is injured or discovers the injury. You MUST find a law firm in that time frame to fight for your legal rights. As soon as the lawsuit starts, you no longer limited to any timeframe to present the case.

Statute of limitation laws vary by and often by type of injury. So make sure to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to find out if you can claim compensation.
