What are the Steps Involved in Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim?
While there is no one way to handle a personal injury matter, there is a general procedure after experiencing an accident or injury. The nuts and bolts of the Personal Injury process consist of:
1. Reporting: Following an accident or injury, report the accident to the necessary persons. *Be careful with statements made to Insurance companies while reporting*
2. Medical Treatment: Seek immediate medical treatment following an accident or injury. Even if you do not experience any imminent pain or believe your injury is minor, it is a good idea to be fully evaluated by a medical professional as some injuries do not present themselves immediately. A trained medical professional should determine whether you have sustained any serious injuries in the accident. They will also share medical advice on monitoring symptoms of potential injuries.
3. Consult with an Attorney: Pursuing Personal Injury cases entails evidence gathering, interviewing expert witnesses, and experience with negligence law. They are often complex matters. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with a personal injury lawyer when seeking compensation. At Minor Law Offices, our law firm provides free, no-cost case evaluations. Attorney Minor has the legal knowledge to represent injured clients in a variety of personal injury cases.
4. Continue Medical Treatment: If you have sustained an injury in an accident, most likely there be follow-up visits with trained medical professionals. It is extremely important to be consistent with care to maintain the progress of your injuries and ensure complete healing. Furthermore, trained medical professionals will be able to determine if any residual injuries are present.
5. Settlement Negotiation after Medical Treatment is Completed: After medical treatment is completed, a demand package will be presented to the opposing party outlining liability and damages. In response, the opposing party may accept, counteroffer, or reject the demand. If a settlement is unsuccessful, a lawsuit will be filed to recover compensation.
6. Trial: Before trial, mediation may be conducted in an attempt to reach an agreement between the parties thereby avoiding trial. However, if mediation is unsuccessful, a trial will ensue determining fault and possibly awarding damages.
7. Appeal: Depending on the outcome and specifications of the case, the losing party may appeal.
