Your injury attorney will handle your litigation through civil court proceedings and should attempt to reach a settlement with the other party. This is often achieved, preventing the need to file an actual lawsuit. When a settlement occurs, it means that you, the plaintiff, agree to forgo or dismiss legal action against the other party in exchange for a specified monetary amount. Special situations may also require additional forms of compensation. Settling New Jersey personal injury litigation benefits both parties in many ways, including the avoidance of potentially lengthy and stressful legal proceedings.
However, at the time of trial, if a settlement cannot be reached, your lawyer works to prove your case in a court of law. The details of your case will, of course, be unique, but your personal injury attorney will generally present evidence to prove that the negligence of the defendant caused the plaintiff’s injury.
Notice of claim
In personal injury litigation, if a prospective defendant is a public entity, your attorney must file a notice of claim. This informs the public entity regarding your New Jersey lawsuit and provides them an opportunity to respond prior to the filing of an official lawsuit in civil court. The public entity often rejects such claims, freeing you to file a formal lawsuit.
