As the plaintiff, or the party bringing a personal injury or accident case to court, the task falls on you and your legal counsel to sway the courts that your side of the argument is correct. This responsibility is often referred to as the “burden of proof”—and that proof is based greatly on the evidence you can present in support of the argument your case is making.
The thought of having to go to court, whether you’re a plaintiff or a defendant, can be rather intimidating. Needing to find a lawyer, prepping your case, facing a judge and jury—every step of the way may feel scary and stressful.
When you’ve been injured, insurance companies often play a big role in your accidental injury litigation process. From car insurance companies to health insurance providers—chances are you’ll need to work with one at some point during your personal injury case. As a result, it is incredibly helpful to understand how insurance companies can positively or negatively impact your outcome.
Most personal injury accidents occur for one reason, and one reason alone: Someone was careless and/or negligent, causing legal harm to another person or property (often referred to as “liability”).
If you’ve recently been injured due to an accident—such as a car accident, a slip or fall, or a work-related injury—you may be wondering if you're entitled to any financial compensation for damages.
