What is litigation?

May 10, 2024
When someone is injured in an accident, they may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, the responsible party may not always be willing to pay for these damages voluntarily. This is where litigation comes in.

Litigation is a legal process that involves resolving disputes between two or more parties through the court system. In personal injury cases, litigation refers to the process of seeking compensation for injuries sustained due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or entity.

The injured party can file a lawsuit against the responsible party, which will then go through the court system. The parties involved will present evidence and arguments to a judge or jury, who will ultimately decide whether the responsible party should be held liable for the injuries and how much compensation should be awarded.

During the litigation process, both parties may engage in negotiations to reach a settlement before the case goes to trial. Settlements can be beneficial for both parties as they can avoid the time and expense of a trial. However, if a settlement cannot be reached, the case will proceed to trial where the judge or jury will make a final decision.

It is important for the injured party to have strong evidence and a persuasive argument to increase their chances of receiving fair compensation. A personal injury attorney can help gather evidence, build a strong case, and represent the injured party in court.

Litigation can be a lengthy and complex process, but it is often necessary to ensure that injured parties receive the compensation they deserve. It is important to have a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney on your side to guide you through the process and fight for your rights.
