A personal injury case is a legal dispute that results from an injury causing accident, where another person may be legally responsible for the cost of the injuries. Civil court proceedings may formalize a personal injury case. However, personal injury cases are classified into two sections:
- Formal Lawsuit: A Formal lawsuit is initiated by an individual filing a civil complaint against another person or business. Formal lawsuits are typically filed when the two parties cannot come to an agreement settlement based on both parties’ requests. These disputes must prove that subject A was injured by subject B.
- Informal Settlement: Most personal injury cases are handled outside of court in a settlement. These settlements are overseen by your personal injury lawyer, the insurers, and the defendant’s lawyer. Settlements will vary depending on one’s compensation loss, damages, medical bills, etc.
Where Are Personal Injury Lawsuits Filed?
Lawsuits are filed in the state where the injury occurred. Talk to your personal injury attorney for more information on how to file a lawsuit.
Depending on the severity of the personal injury case and where the parties are located, you may file a personal injury lawsuit in U.S. District Courts.
