When does a Personal Injury Case Go into Litigation
Table of Contents
What is Litigation?
Litigation happens when a claim such as wrongful injury or death compensation cannot settle out of court. In most states, the judicial system limits litigation to the person (s) who filed the lawsuit, who was the one wrongfully injured. In the instances of significant disability or death of that person, the advocate can litigate.
You Must Do Three Things Immediately Following Your Accident
- When you suffer from wrongful injuries in an accident in Philadelphia or surrounding areas, get medical attention first.
- Take as many pictures and notes of what happened as soon as you can of the scene as possible or ask an advocate to take photos if you cannot.
- At the first minute, after you seek medical treatment, call our law office at Wapner Newman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Allow Your Attorney To Be Your Spokesperson
Remember, never admit fault for anything or say you are sorry for anything related to your accident. Never speak to insurance companies or give answers to insurance agents. Never determine on your own if you have a case or not. Please leave this up to your professional and experienced attorneys.
Never file a lawsuit against a negligent person or company and fight this complicated situation by yourself. You may lose your fight, and if you do win a settlement, it is never adequate. Insurance companies and other entities do not like to pay any more money, then they absolutely must.
Settle Out of Court if Possible
Most of the wrongful injuries and death lawsuits settle out of court because plaintiffs and defendants neither want to go to court with a likely impending trial. If you have a good, sound case, you have excellent chances of getting the settlement you deserve to pay for all of your expenses related to your accident.

Wrongful accidents are nearly 100 percent due to the reckless actions and negligent behaviors of another person. If you came out of your accident with minor injuries and the accident was not your fault, you need to still speak with this accident attorney. Health issues can arise months into the future related to your accident. The good thing is that the court system is on your side. However, we must prove three things to forge ahead with your injury claim.
Your Three Responsibilities of Proof
- You must show that you suffered a significant injury.
- You must show that your injuries were caused by the negligence of another person, company, or product.
- You must show that your accident injuries caused a financial loss such as loss of job, loss of wages, loss of personal property, and much more.
We can help you with this. The court considers whether the negligent person should have been aware that their actions would cause serious injury to another person. Sometimes, when others are hurt by someone’s actions, the attorney must decide in court if you are partly responsible. If you were, you may be able to recoup a settlement as long as your blame is less than the defendant’s.
