Should You File a Personal Injury Claim? How Does It Work?
Many clients wonder whether they have a case and, even if they do, whether they should pursue their case and file a personal injury claim. Here, we explain why the answer to that question should always be yes.
After an accident, it can be difficult to move on. Given the nature of their personal injuries – the strain and stress they have already caused – they understandably conclude that further action is unnecessary hassle.
However, that is a mischaracterization of personal injury claims. For example, most claims are handled out of court – a settlement is agreed before it goes to trial. To that end, then, utilizing personal injury lawyers is far from a source of stress but is, instead, a routine course of legal action.
The purpose of filing a personal injury claim is simple – to establish culpability; to determine who is at fault.
The nature of the case can be simple or complex, involving one guilty party or several guilty parties. Watertight evidence is needed to establish such culpability.
