If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence or incompetence, either in an accident or through a medical error, your road to recovery is difficult and may be blocked by high medical bills, an inability to work, chronic pain and suffering, and even depression or emotional trauma. Your focus should be on healing, not on worrying how you will pay your bills. Unfortunately, any settlement offered from the insurance company will most likely not scratch the surface of what you need. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer in Greenville, NC who will take on the insurance companies, advocate tirelessly on your behalf and hold those responsible for your suffering accountable for their actions.
A personal injury lawsuit can be filed in civil court when a person is injured due to someone else’s intentional action or negligence. While many cases are settled out of court between the plaintiff’s and defendant’s legal counsel, a percentage are litigated in court. A jury will then hear the case and determine if the defendant is liable. If they find in the plaintiff’s favor, they will then determine damages – the financial settlement designed to cover medical bills, time off work, and even physical and emotional suffering.
