What Is A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a civil lawsuit. These lawsuits are filed by a plaintiff who alleges that another person or party acted negligently and caused them serious harm. Plaintiffs choose to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to fight for the compensation that could cover all of the losses that they have sustained.
Compensation comes through either a settlement or a successful court verdict and is supposed to replace monetary losses such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as non-monetary losses such as physical pain and suffering and emotional trauma.

When a plaintiff recovers compensation, this money is supposed to pay for their actual losses. As such, each case has a different outcome. Our attorneys cannot provide an estimate as to how much an individual case may be worth without first reviewing it.
How Long Does It Take To Recover Compensation Through A Lawsuit?
Lawsuits can take anywhere from several months to more than a year depending on the circumstances.
