What to Know Before You File a Lawsuit
Start your personal injury case as soon as possible. Your personal injury lawyer will prepare a case as if it is going to trial, but often, cases are settled before they reach that point. Your lawyer will engage in negotiations with the opposing counsel to attempt to reach settlement. That’s the best option, because if a case goes to jury you may not see any compensation for years.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will help you gather all the important records you’ll need, like medical records, police reports, or other information. They’ll file the correct legal papers on time. From negotiating a settlement to filing complicated legal papers—McIntyre Law will be with you every step of the way. This isn’t a path you need to walk down alone, especially when you’re already dealing with the trauma and suffering caused by your injury.
What is a contingency fee?
When a lawyer works on a “contingency fee” basis, they’re agreeing to accept a fixed percentage of any monetary rewards from your lawsuit to cover their legal fees. If there are no rewards from your drug liability case, you don’t pay the lawyer. We get paid if, and only if, you do.
The Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits
A personal injury lawsuit can be filed in a court that has jurisdiction over the case. That could be the district court where the injury occurred, or it could be the court where either you or the other party lives. Although the requirement is that a lawsuit must be filed within two years from when the injury occurred, the exception to this is that it could also be within two years of when the injury is discovered. These laws vary from state to state, so the best thing to do is to contact an attorney as soon as you think you might be eligible for compensation.

What compensation can I get from a personal injury lawsuit?
Courts recognize that injured parties deserve compensation for both economic and non-economic loss. An economic loss would be anything that costs you money, like past or future estimated lost wages or medical bills. A non-economic loss is physical or emotional pain and suffering. Possible compensation can include:
- Cash awards
- Medical bills
- Emotional Suffering
- Lost wages
- Disability accommodation
- Damages to property
