What Happens During A Personal Injury Case?
Approximately ninety-five percent of all personal injury cases are settled through settlement negotiations. Only five percent of cases proceed to trial. If you have suffered personal injury during a car accident you need to understand that you will likely receive a settlement offer from an insurance company.
Do not accept the first settlement offer you receive from an insurance company. You need to retain a personal injury lawyer so you can send a demand letter to the insurance company that sets forth in detail the costs of your medical treatment and other quantifiable damages associated with your car accident case.
After a demand letter is drafted your attorney will wait for a response from the insurance company representing the responsible party. If the insurance company does not offer a settlement that is close to the policy limits of the applicable insurance policy it may become necessary to file a complaint.
A civil complaint is the first step in a civil lawsuit. The other party will have a lawyer who will file an answer to the complaint. After the answer is filed the parties will engage in formal discovery. You may be asked to participate in a deposition during which opposing counsel will ask you questions regarding the accident, any prior injuries, and the medical records associated with your injuries.
If the case does not proceed to trial it will typically settle after the discovery period ends. Both sides may file motions that request the court to issue an order forcing one side to produce specific items of evidence. It is likely that your case will settle before it proceeds to trial. Most cases are more complicated than this description but these stages are relevant to most automobile accident cases.
