What Is A Personal Injury Civil Case?

What is a personal injury civil case? A personal injury case is a lawsuit which compensates the damages of a victim. One of the most common types comes from accidents involving motor vehicles. These legal disputes can be settled "informally" before a lawsuit is filed, though this is not always the case. When it comes to motor vehicle injuries, it can go either way. There are many conditions which define whether a personal injury civil case will be settled "out of court" or not. If the responsible party is part of a large organization, a settlement may be established without the need for a court proceeding. However, the level of injury may induce the victim to insist on a trial jury. Knowing which track to take often requires the help of a professional attorney, because every case will be different. In Kansas, local litigation requires an attorney who understands regional personal injury law and can help a client understand which kind of settlement to go for and why.

In 2015 there were 60,473 auto accidents in Kansas. Of those 60,000+ accidents, 13,002 resulted in an injury, and 322 were fatal. As you can imagine, extremely injurious accidents and those resulting in fatalities requiring an in-depth personal injury civil case may be concerning for those who are unfamiliar with the process of taking such a battle to court.
