When Does An Injury Claim Become An Injury Lawsuit?

Imagine you were injured in a car accident caused by someone else. You have hospital and doctor bills, costs for medications and bandages, and continuing therapy bills. You're hurt and can't work. The pain you suffer continues daily. What do you do?

After an accident or injury, there are usually two ways to get compensation from those who are at fault: be offered and accept a settlement outside of court, or go through with a civil lawsuit in order to collect damages.

While a civil lawsuit might ultimately net a successful plaintiff more money than settlement would, the vast majority of personal injury cases settle well before trial, and often before a lawsuit is even filed. However, it is important to understand the difference between the two, what causes some cases to turn into lawsuits and which one best applies to your situation.
