Have you been involved in a personal injury? Take a look below to learn more about the legal process that may lie ahead for you.

Seek Medical Treatment

The first thing to do is get treated for the injury you sustained. It's important to get the proper medical treatment required to help heal your injury. Document all of your injuries and keep records of all treatment required. This can help to prove the personal injury sustained due to someone else's negligence.

Hire a Lawyer

A legal professional can help you navigate the personal injury lawsuit. With legal experience on your side, it can help you rest easy during your lawsuit. A lawyer can help to walk you through the entire process. From sharing your records to filing a lawsuit to the court trial, legal experience can help you have confidence as you navigate the process.

Share Situation & Records

Once you have found a lawyer, it's time to share your story. Give a detailed count of the proceedings of your injury. It can be very helpful to present medical records from your injury treatment, as well. During this phase, your lawyer can help you decide if you do have a case on your hands. If you wish to proceed with your lawsuit, it's time to make a legal motion.

File Lawsuit

The next phase is to file a lawsuit for the personal injury you sustained due to someone else's negligence. Your lawyer can help walk you through the process and assist with the legal documentation required to file. If you do want to file a lawsuit, try to do so as soon as possible to avoid a statute of limitation situation.


If the case proceeds, your personal injury lawsuit will likely be represented in court. This is your chance to share your side of the story and showcase your documentation proving the injury in which you needed medical treatment. At this point, the judge or jury will decide if you get the damages for your injury or not. Damages are typically a dollar amount to cover your medical treatment and/or income that was lost due to the injury.
