What Happens During Pre-Litigation in a Personal Injury Case
When you've suffered a personal injury due to someone else's negligence, pursuing compensation through a personal injury claim is often necessary to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. The legal process typically begins with a phase known as pre-litigation. In this blog post, we'll take you through the key steps and processes that occur during pre-litigation in a personal injury case.
Initial Consultation with an Attorney
Investigation and Gathering Evidence
Negotiating with Insurance Companies
Mediation or Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Filing a Lawsuit (If Necessary)
Preparing for Litigation
The pre-litigation phase in a personal injury case is a critical period where your attorney works diligently to investigate, negotiate, and assess the strength of your case. This phase aims to secure a fair settlement without the need for a lawsuit. However, if negotiations fail to produce a satisfactory outcome, your attorney will be fully prepared to proceed with litigation, ensuring your rights and interests are protected throughout the legal process.
