The Personal Injury Timeline
Each and every case is different; however, here are a few basic steps followed by an attorney in a personal injury lawsuit.
Prioritize your health.
The best way to understand how your injuries will affect you, even if you may not feel them right away, is by seeking medical treatment and consulting with a doctor.
Choose a lawyer.

Discovery Process Begins
After being thoroughly interviewed about the cause of your injury, your attorney will want to gather any and all data relative to the accident, your injury and your treatment. After finishing treatment, your attorney will collect your medical records and bills to review them.
Settling the Case or Taking the Case to Trial
Many smaller personal injury claims are settled before a lawsuit is ever filed. If the lawyer thinks that the case can be settled, they will make a demand to the other attorney or the other side's insurance company. Otherwise, your lawyer will file the lawsuit and your case will go to trial.
