What to Expect Part 1: Starting a Personal Injury Lawsuit

What to Expect Part 1: Starting a Personal Injury Lawsuit

What is one of the reasons individuals injured by negligence fail to take legal action? Often times, there are a number of reasons they are hesitant, but mostly, they just don’t know what to do or what to expect. This brings up feelings of anxiety, prompting injured individuals to avoid the legal process.

Whether you’re concerned about what to do, how you’re going to pay a lawyer, or anything else, it shouldn’t stop you from seeking legal action. Our Houston auto accident attorneys detail what it takes to start a personal injury lawsuit so you have peace of mind every step of the way.

Speaking with a Lawyer

Following an accident, one of the most important things an injured party can do is contact a lawyer who can explain the rights and options you have. The lawyer can also help you in terms of advising you on what items you need to successfully start the personal injury lawsuit process.

In injury cases, lawyers typically offer free consultations for you to discuss the details of your situation, as well as understand the process. This is a time for you to address any possible concerns and ask your questions.

Filing the Proper Paperwork

In order to help ensure you’re taking legal action in a proper way, the necessary paperwork must be filed in a timely manner. You can’t leave out important information and the lawsuit must be filed within the statute of limitations.

If you do not file in time, your case may not be heard and you may forfeit your right to seek compensation.

Serving the Defendant

The paperwork must be served to the defendant who will then either file motions to have the case dropped or work to avoid legal action. This can be a lengthy process, but it’s important for the victim to stay positive and a lawyer will keep the situation under control.

Taking action is the first step to seeking justice. It’s important to have someone on your side dedicated to guiding you through the process so you don’t have to worry about the legal matters. Instead, you want to focus on your recovery and have someone keep your best interests in mind.
