What to Expect From a Personal Injury Claim?
In this case, the injured person (the plaintiff) files a claim or lawsuit against the person, business or entity responsible for causing the plaintiff’s injury. The negligent party (or parties) is called the defendant.
Beginning the Personal Injury Lawsuit
Most cases begin with the plaintiff’s lawyer contacting the defendant and the defendant’s insurance company or the defendant’s lawyer if a big company. The Plaintiff’s lawyer will investigate the facts of the case, and gather as much evidence as they can. At some point, a settlement demand and negotiation will take place, and if necessary, a lawsuit will
be filed in a court of law. The approach you choose depends on the facts of the case, as well as the parties involved.
After the plaintiff files the lawsuit, the defendant usually through his insurance company lawyer will file an answer in response often denying they are responsible for causing plaintiff’s injuries. This is a very routine procedure. The New Jersey personal injury lawyers at Rosner Law Offices, P.C. will fully explain what the defendant is claiming and why.
The Discovery Process
Once the case is in full swing, both sides have a right to ask each other questions and to request documents from the other side and witnesses that support their positions. They do this through a process called “discovery.” Discovery largely takes place outside the courtroom.
During the discovery process, the plaintiff and the defendant may be required to answer questions during a “deposition,” which is like testifying in court. Your attorney will need to provide expert medical reports from your treating Doctors to help prove how badly you were injured as a result of the accident. The defendant insurance company lawyer will have a doctor of their choice evaluate a plaintiff as part of their defense of a lawsuit. The discovery process is a critical step in any case. It helps each side strengthen their position, as well as eliminates any potential weak areas in their case.
As each side gathers more information and support for their claims, they may explore the possibility of settling the case. In fact, the majority of personal injury cases settle well before the trial stage.
Settlement negotiations can take place at any point between the start of the lawsuit and trial. It may also take several rounds of settlement talks and communication between the two sides to reach an agreement. Sometimes the court will conduct settlement conferences or conduct mediations to try and get a case settled. If the parties agree to settle the case, they waive their right to pursue any further claims against each other related to the accident. It is important to know when to accept a personal injury settlement. Our personal injury attorneys can help you decide when to accept a settlement and when to keep negotiating or go to trial to fight for justice on your behalf.
In some cases, a settlement is just not possible. At Rosner Law Offices, P.C., our New Jersey personal injury lawyers will fight for justice for you and take a case all the way to trial if necessary. We will analyze your case to determine the pros and cons of proceeding to the trial once we have learned all of the important facts.
