What is a personal injury case?
A personal injury case is a legal discord that occurs when a person suffers harm from an accident or an injury due to someone else’s carelessness or intentional misconduct. A personal injury case is formalized in a civil court where fault is determined. The case can be resolved through an informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed or through formal lawsuits.
Can I be compensated for my injury?
If your injury was a result of another person’s negligence, you have the legal right to pursue compensation for your injuries and losses. Depending on the intent or negligence of a responsible party, you may be entitled to compensation from that party through a settlement or a judgment.
Is there any time limit for filing a personal injury claim?
There are strict time limits for making a personal injury claim, also known as the statute of limitations. The period for filing a personal injury claim begins on the date of the incident. The time limit for filing personal injury lawsuits may range from one to six years depending on the type of incident. Failure to file within this time frame can prevent you from claiming your rightful compensation.
Will I have to go to court if I file a personal injury claim?
No, you don’t have to go to court to file a personal injury claim. A claim may be resolved with legal help and the insurance company. A personal injury claim is resolved when a compromised settlement payment is reached and both parties are satisfied. However, you can file a lawsuit if you believe the personal injury claim was not resolved fairly. A lawyer will help you with this.
