How do I file a personal injury claim?

A lawsuit is started by filing a complaint, allegations of negligence against the people who committed the acts that you are complaining of that you say caused your injury. After the complaint is filed with the court, it gets served on the defendants usually by a process server. After the initial discovery proceedings, the defendants will ask for information about your medical condition. They will request copies of your medical records, your hospital records. After that, both parties submit to oral questioning called depositions.

They ask you how the accident happened, the nature of the accident, the nature of your injuries and how it's affected your life. The court orders a date to be set for trial at which point the attorneys for both sides prepare their cases for trial. If you’ve had an accident either with a car, or a truck or a bus, it is important for you to contact an attorney right away because there are time limits within which you can bring a lawsuit.
