What are the steps to filing a personal injury lawsuit?
I’ve been asked many times by clients and other people, what are the steps in filing a personal injury lawsuit? The steps in filing a personal injury lawsuit are, first, you have a lot of work to do before you ever file a lawsuit. In my mind, you have to have 80% of the work done before you ever file a lawsuit. The only way to move a case is for the plaintiff’s attorney – that’s me, as your attorney, to move the case forward. Otherwise, the case will stagnate, and defendants like to deny, delay, and defend. That’s what insurance companies do. My job is to get the case moving and keep it moving, and the way to do that is to prepare 80% before you file the lawsuit. Then as soon as the lawsuit’s filed, you keep the case moving, and you ask the court for a scheduling conference, have a trial right away to keep the case moving and keep the pressure on the other side. That’s the only way you get their attention.
There’s a lot of work to do first. The first part of getting together is a fact memo, all the information that you have, all the medical records, and then we have to have crash reports. If it’s gets that kind of case, it requires crash reports, investigator reports, the information that we can get from public agencies. All of that has to be compiled before the lawsuit is filed. Those are the steps. If you have other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to call my office.
