What Are the Stages of a Personal Injury Lawsuit? AllLaw

1 hours ago Class Action Lawsuit Settlements - Claim Free Cash

Estimated Reading Time: 7 mins
1. The Plaintiff Is Injured and (Usually) Hires an Attorney. At the heart of any legitimate personal injury case is, of course, an injury of some kind. However uncertain the defendant's liability or the extent of the plaintiff's losses might be, no case will make it far without some proof of the plaintiff's injury.
2. A Complaint Is Filed and Served on the Defendant. After establishing that a legitimate case exists, the plaintiff's attorney will file a personal injury complaint in the proper civil court.
3. The Defendant Hires an Attorney. The defendant will typically have a month or more to find an attorney before his or her first court date. If the defendant has assets or an applicable insurance policy, finding a personal injury defense attorney willing to take on the case should not prove difficult.
4. Pre-Trial and "Discovery" In the pre-trial process, both sides will ask each other for evidence and witness information in a phase called "discovery." At the early stages, both sides will also appear in court to inform the judge of how the case is proceeding, to agree (or not agree) to mediation or arbitration, and to set a trial date.
5. The Trial Phase of a Personal Injury Lawsuit. Finally, the trial will begin and, for a typical personal injury case, last at least several days. At trial, the judge or jury will determine if the defendant is at fault for the accident and for the plaintiff's losses, and if so, how much the defendant is required to pay out in damages.
6. Settlement Is the Most Likely Outcome. Most personal injury cases settle before trial. At any point in the process described above, the parties can settle and end the case, even before the complaint is filed.

The 7 Stages to a Lawsuit – The Basics – Money Instructor

8 hours ago

1. Filing the Court Papers. In a criminal case the court papers will either be filed by the federal government or the state – so we will leave criminal cases aside here.
2. Choosing a Jury. One of the wonders of living in a democracy is that we nearly always have the right to have our court case tried in front of a “jury of our peers”.
3. Opening Statements. Having sat through jury selection, and having finally decided a jury and a day on which to start the trial, you can now look forward to opening statements – or arguments as they are sometimes (wrongly) called in the movies.
4. Witness and Expert Testimony and Cross-Examination. Once the opening statements are out of the way, we then get into the part of the case that gets most law drama fans excited – the examination and cross-examination of the witnesses and experts.
5. Closing Arguments. Once the Quincy like excitement of the examinations is out of the way, each of the lawyers then has the chance to give a closing argument, where they will remind the jury all of the salient facts that have arisen during the case that support their case.
6. Jury Instruction. Following closing argument, the judge will then instruct the jury on what matters of law there may be. At this time, if the facts are clear-cut enough, the judge can even “direct” the jury to give a particular judgment.
7. The Verdict. When the jury returns, they’ll tell the court what their decision is. In cases where damages can be determined by the jury, they may give this as well.

1. Each party in a lawsuit files initial papers, known as “pleadings.” The pleadings explain each party’s side of the dispute. The Complaint: Litigation begins when the plaintiff files a complaint with the court and formally delivers a copy to the defendant. The complaint describes what the defendant did (or failed to do) that caused harm to the plaintiff and the legal basis for holding the defendant responsible for that harm. The Answer: The defendant is given a specific amount of time to file an answer to the complaint. The answer provides the defendant’s side of the dispute.

1. Maureen DeSaulles filed a lawsuit that contained seven causes of action (seven legal claims). Defendant, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (“CHOMP”), filed a motion for summary adjudication (to defeat parts of the lawsuit) and motions in limine (limiting evidence at trial) which resulted in two causes of action that would go to trial, breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.

1. The Name Calling Phase (Pleadings). The Pleadings stage of the lawsuit consists of the petition filed by the plaintiff and the answer and other responses filed by the defendant.
2. The Information Grab (Discovery). Once the pleadings have established the parameters of the lawsuit, the parties start the discovery process of compelling information from the other side, which can be significant when the information sought is sensitive business information.
3. The Knock-Out Punch (Dispositive Motions). After discovery is completed, one side (usually the defendant) usually attempts to “knock-out” the other side’s claims by filing a motion for summary judgment, arguing that the case should be dismissed because the other party cannot present sufficient evidence to establish each and every element of the underlying claim.
4. Bare-Knuckle Boxing (The Trial). If both parties survive the knock-out punches and a settlement cannot be reached, the parties must resolve their lawsuit with a trial where each party does whatever it can do to win.
5. The Neverending Story (The Appeal). Even if you win at trial, the losing party may appeal the judgment and, if successful, push the litigation back into a prior stage.
