What Happens During Pre-Litigation in a Personal Injury Case

Updated: Oct 8, 2023

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.

  1. Initial Consultation with an Attorney

  2. Investigation and Gathering Evidence

  3. Determining Liability

  4. Calculating Damages

  5. Negotiating with Insurance Companies

  6. Mediation or Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

  7. Filing a Lawsuit (If Necessary)

  8. 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.
