Suffering a personal injury can be a life-changing event. Whether it is at work, at someone else's house, at your favorite store, or any other location, you deserve compensation if you were injured because of someone else's negligence. At Ciccarelli Law Offices, our personal injury attorneys can help you receive a fair and just reward for your pain.
Personal injury cases are unfortunately quite common because of the number of incidents this sector of law includes. As someone defending people hurt because of someone else's actions, it is important to have knowledge that extends to all these areas. We help Pennsylvania citizens who have suffered injuries because of a wide variety of accidents.
Parts of a Personal Injury Lawsuit
There are many conditions that must be satisfied to succeed with a personal injury lawsuit.
First, you need proof that your injury is significant enough for you to be eligible to file a suit. Go to the doctor's office and have them look at your injury. Not only will this get you treatment, it will also help if you decide to file a claim, as medical records or bills are strong pieces of evidence that will help your case.
If you choose to pursue a lawsuit, find the right personal injury attorney. You need a Pennsylvania attorney who will offer dedicated and determined support. At Ciccarelli, we have 100 years of combined experience in law. We can analyze your injury and the incident and begin to craft a course of action for your case. We will learn everything we can about you; your background, and anything that could help strengthen your claim. We know all the rules about Pennsylvania court and filing a personal injury case, so you can be sure that we will operate effectively under Pennsylvania law.
After you and your personal injury lawyer have filed, you begin the discovery process. This involves reviewing the case and looking over the other's party's claim. During this step, your injury attorney will obtain important documents and take depositions from witnesses or any other relevant professionals. This step generally lasts six months to a year.
Once the discovery period is over, the attorneys will begin negotiating. It is usually preferable to settle a case outside of court because it is less expensive, less time consuming, and less traumatic. Your attorneys will do their best to reach a compromise and end the process before going to trial. If the attorneys are unable to reach a deal that both clients accept, the case goes to trial. This can be a difficult and lengthy process. A qualified attorney will not only be prepared to stand trial but present an adequate history of trial experience.
