Do I Have to Make a Claim With an Insurance Company or Can I File a Lawsuit Right Away?

From automobile accidents to slip and falls, victims of personal injury accidents are often unsure how to navigate the legal system after an accident. Sustaining a serious injury in an accident can be stressful, overwhelming and life-changing enough without having to worry about how to recover compensation for your losses. This is why having the proper legal representation is critical for success in your case.


If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in an accident, below are several options for pursuing your case. 


How to Resolve Your Personal Injury Case

The first thing to determine is whether you truly have a case. While you may have been injured, not all injuries result in legal liability. Discussing the details of your accident with a personal injury attorney is the best course of action. Your attorney will help you determine your next steps—including whether you should settle outside of court or file a lawsuit.


Regardless of the type of accident, your attorney can help you assess the facts of the case, outline your options and determine the best strategy for moving forward. Your attorney can help you determine if you should file a lawsuit as well as identify the parties who should be a part of the suit. 


However, before proceeding to litigation, your attorney will typically try to negotiate with the insurance company or at-fault party in an attempt to settle your case. Most cases are settled and never go to court. However, if the parties cannot reach a settlement, the injured party can file a lawsuit in civil court.


When you file a lawsuit, your attorney begins to prepare for trial. They will take formal statements, depositions, gather evidence, and retain experts. Most cases will settle before  reaching the courtroom, but in order to maximize recovery, in some cases it may be in the best interest of the victim to litigate the case in court.
