Whether to file a lawsuit is not the only question that must be answered when someone has suffered injuries as a result of the conduct of another person or product. That is a central issue, but should not dominate the decision masking process. Questions about when to file the lawsuit and where to file the lawsuit need to also be addressed. Medical issues come into play. Has the treatment progressed enough to a point where one can draw conclusions on the permanent nature of the injuries? Has the victim received the appropriate medical care for the injuries sustained? What are the obstacles or defenses to the litigation? What causes of action should be pursued and is there any potential for the recovery of attorney’s fees or treble/punitive damages? Is there a possibility of working a settlement out without filing a lawsuit? Does my conduct influence my ability to recover? Why has the insurance adjuster contacted me and made an offer? The answers to these and other questions are important for you and your family to make an informed decision on how to proceed and to maximize potential recovery.
