- Seek medical attention: Your health and safety should be your top priority. Seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident, even if you feel fine. Some injuries may not be apparent immediately.
- Document the accident: Collect as much information as possible about the accident, including taking photos of the scene and getting contact information for any witnesses.
- Contact an attorney: It’s important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident. An attorney can help protect your rights and guide you through the legal process.
- Investigation and discovery: Your attorney will investigate the accident and gather evidence to build your case. This may include reviewing police reports, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with experts.
- Settlement negotiations: Your attorney will negotiate with the other party or their insurance company to reach a settlement that fairly compensates you for your injuries and damages.
- Filing a lawsuit: If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney may recommend filing a lawsuit. This involves filing a complaint with the court and serving it on the defendant.
- Discovery: Both parties will engage in discovery, which involves exchanging information and evidence related to the case.
- Trial: If the case does not settle, it will proceed to trial. Your attorney will present your case to a judge or jury, and the other side will present their case as well.
- Verdict or settlement: If the case goes to trial, the judge or jury will make a decision, which may include a verdict in your favor or a decision in favor of the other side. If the case settles at any point during the process, you will receive compensation for your injuries and damages.
