The Process of Reaching a Settlement in a Personal Injury Claim
In this pace will be different depending on whether you proceed with your personal injury case in the court. In this portion, we will be discussing the things that you need to expect from both the process of litigation and negotiation.
File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
If you file a personal injury lawsuit and see it through to a decision the amount that you receive is called judgment, award or damages rather than settlement. The judge will decide the amount you will receive and will be determined by a jury in a jury trial or bench trial.
It usually takes a year or more before a litigation process for personal injury settlements can give you a judgment that will start on the day you will file a claim. This will depend on the complexity, and you may be attending a trial for days or weeks.
