The Basics of Personal Injury

There are many different situations where personal injury rules apply, including:
  • Accidents - Situations where someone acts in a negligent manner, and that carelessness causes harm to another person. This might include car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, etc.
  • Intentional Acts - Situations where a defendant's intentional conduct causes harm to another person. This might involve assault and battery.
  • Defective Products - Situations when a vehicle component, consumer product, medical device, pharmaceutical, or other product is defective or unreasonably dangerous.
  • Defamation - Situations where a person’s defamatory statements cause harm to another.

How Does a Personal Injury Case Work?

While every personal injury case will be unique, there is a standard process you can expect if you choose to file a claim.

Let’s examine the following basic step-by-step process:
Defendant Injures Plaintiff

This includes any bad act on the part of the defendant in the realm of personal injury law.

Plaintiff Determines that Defendant Breached a Legal Duty

After the initial event, the plaintiff would then figure out if the defendant is liable. Examples include determining that a driver operated without a reasonable level of care, a doctor did not follow the applicable medical standard of care, etc. This step typically requires the help of a seasoned personal injury attorney to determine if the defendant did in fact breach a specific legal duty.

Settlement Negotiations Occur

The defendant (or the representing insurance company) may settle outside of court. This requires all involved to agree that the defendant breached a legal duty. It also requires that the offered monetary compensation be accepted by the plaintiff. The injured person will promise not to file a lawsuit. If a plaintiff agrees to a settlement, the case ends.

The Case May Go to Court

If the plaintiff does not agree to the settlement, they may go to court and file a personal injury lawsuit. A settlement could still be reached at any time until the case is handed over to a jury for a finding as to the defendant's liability.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is typically recommended that you hire an experienced attorney to handle any personal injury claim to ensure you get the best outcome. Some situations that especially require the help of an attorney include:
  • Demanding compensation for serious injuries as well as pain and suffering beyond a few thousand dollars.
  • Seeking future damages for lost future income of the costs of medical treatment you may need down the road.
  • If there is some question as to who was at fault for the accident.
