Personal Injury Civil Claims Process

The claims process involves the following steps:

  1. An interview with your attorney. We will want to know as much as possible about your accident, injuries, and medical treatment so that we are optimally informed.
  2. Medical records. We will obtain all of your medical records, invoices, and bills related to the treatments received for your injuries. If you have had medical treatment for your current injury condition in the past, we may also need to obtain those records as well.
  3. In small injury cases, a demand is made to the opposing party. These are cases that are generally settled quickly after a demand is sent to the insurance company or other party’s attorney that can be negotiated.
  4. In more serious cases, a demand is not made nor a claim filed until you have received enough medical care to understand the long-term prognosis of your injuries. This is to ensure that your case is not undervalued.
  5. A settlement is negotiated. Should a settlement not be reached, litigation will begin.
  6. Litigation. This is started by filing a lawsuit in court.
  7. The “discovery” process. This involves an exchange of information between both sides involving claims and defenses.
  8. Negotiation. This step may include mediation. This may or may not lead to a settlement.
  9. The personal injury trial. Where a settlement has not been reached, the claim will be decided in court by a judge and jury.
