What Can You Expect When You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Filed under Personal Injury

gavel.jpgIt is tough enough when you are facing injuries caused by someone else’s negligence (or intentional acts), but navigating the legal system can be intimidating and confusing. Paul Padda Law, PLLC handles each case with fierce advocacy to defend your rights.

File a Summons & Complaint

The first step in recovering damages is to file the complaint in the state the injury occurred. The summons is the notice to the defendant to appear in court with a response to your complaint.

Proof of Negligence or Intentional Tort

Negligence is proven by exhibiting the defendant failed to perform duties safely (i.e. driving in a safe manner).
Intentional Tort may be proven if evidence exists that the defendant planned to do you harm.

Preponderance of Evidence

If you have ever served jury duty or watched an episode of Law & Order you know that criminal cases require “guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.” However, personal injury cases require a “preponderance of evidence.” This means proof is required that the defendant is 50 percent likely to be responsible for your injury.

Damages can Exceed Medical Bills

Damages from many different aspects of your injury may be claimed in the suit. These may include: past medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages/work time, and pain and suffering.
