Though accidents are often unavoidable and pretty common, that does not prevent us from suffering from the pain and emotional trauma that result. After incurring an injury from an unexpected accident, you may wonder whether you are eligible for a monetary award for your injuries to cover medical costs, lost wages, or pain and suffering. First, you have to determine if you should file an insurance claim or seek damages through a personal injury lawsuit.
A suit that involves personal injury is one that transpires when an individual sustains an injury that may be the fault of someone else. The process can be quite multifaceted. Fortunately, our attorneys at Nikola Law have extensive experience working with clients who need help with personal injury litigation.
Dissimilar to cases involving criminal charges, personal injury suits normally begin when a person, known as the plaintiff, files a formal civil complaint against a business, individual, or corporation, all known as the defendant. A suit can also be filed against a government agency. The plaintiff must prove the defendant’s negligent behavior or irresponsibility was the primary factor that led to the injury or accident.
However, a plaintiff does not always have to take a defendant to court. When concluding who is actually at fault, the majority of disputes are resolved with an informal settlement. This involves the injured party, insurance providers, and legal representation on both sides. The matter is settled through negotiation and followed by a formal written agreement stating that both sides will not pursue any further legal action.
