Do I have to file a lawsuit in order to recovery money for my injuries?
Not necessarily. Whether a lawsuit must be filed in order for you to receive fair compensation for your injuries depends on many factors. Claims can be settled, and many, if not most, cases are settled before a lawsuit is ever filed. Even if a lawsuit is filed, it is common for the case to be settled before it actually goes to trial.
However, it is important that you allow enough time to pass before settling to ensure that your injuries are fully resolved. You don’t want to settle your personal injury claim too early only to find out months down the road that your injuries are more serious and will require more medical treatment than you first thought.
Only a competent and experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and determine whether a lawsuit is warranted. To receive free legal advice about your accident and to learn about your legal options, contact the Texas personal injury attorneys of Fears | Nachawati today.
