The Process of Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Calvert County, MD
If you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit in Calvert County, the process will begin when you and your legal representation file a complaint, which will describe the facts of the case and the legal basis that supports the claim you are making. Then, you will move into the settlement process, which begins when the complaint is served to the defendant. During this period, you and the defendant will attempt to make a deal regarding the amount that you will receive in compensation. If they do not express interest in making a settlement, the suit will then move to the discovery phase, when you and your lawyer will collect evidence that you’ll use to prove your claim. Then the case will be brought to trial where either a jury or a judge will decide whether the defendant is required to provide you with compensation.
