Filing a Claim
After an injury in Spartanburg, you could potentially file a lawsuit against an individual or against a company. In some cases, government agencies may be sued as well. Whether you can file a lawsuit or not will depend upon whether:
- You can provide proof the person, company, or agency had a legal obligation to you they failed to fulfill.
- You can prove that you experienced damages due to the failure. A victim of an injury suffers damages if they incur medical bills for injury treatment, feel physical pain due to injuries, experience emotional pain from the crash, miss work, or has their earning potential reduced because of their injuries. Family members of someone who has been killed due to an accidental injury also experience damages and can file a lawsuit.
A Spartanburg personal injury attorney can provide help in gathering evidence like police reports so you can make a case and recover compensation. While a lawsuit is one option to get compensation, it is also possible for a negotiated settlement to be reached before your claim is resolved by a jury. A settlement means you get paid a set amount of money in exchange for giving up your right to sue for a particular accident or injuries. Your attorney can help you fight for a fair settlement so you can avoid trial.
