What to Expect from Your Lawsuit
File a Personal Injury Claim with Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C.
The process for filing a claim can be frustrating if you do not have an experienced legal team working with you. Even seemingly simple things like gathering your medical documents can prove to be challenging when you do not know who to call and when health care administrators do not treat your case with the urgency it deserves.
At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we take the time to walk our clients through the entire process so they know what to expect when filing an injury claim and recovering a settlement.
Get started on your case today by calling us at (210) 361-2997.
We Can Help You through the Process
The following is a general overview of the various steps from your initial contact with our firm to the final conclusion/trial/settlement of your case.
You can expect to:
- Have an initial consultation: When you first meet with us, we will discuss your accident, your injury, and what options may exist for compensation. We may choose to conduct an exploratory investigation to find out if there are important assets, insurance concerns, or statutes of limitations — things that would influence whether or not your case is viable. If it makes sense to move forward and file a claim, you and your attorney will enter into an agreement (based on contingency fees) and work will begin.
- File a complaint and serve the defendant: Filing a complaint involves giving a broad overview of why the plaintiff is filing a lawsuit. This provides the court system with the first official record of the claim. The complaint must also be delivered to the defendant to ensure he or she is notified of the claim/lawsuit and any impending court dates.
- Engage in pretrial litigation and discovery: The timeline for this part of the process may vary. At this stage, both sides ask each other for evidence and witness information. Hearings may be held to determine how the case is proceeding. Trial dates may be pushed back, mandatory mediation or arbitration may be conducted, and settlements may be reached prior to trial.
- Reach a settlement or eventual trial: Settlements are often reached in personal injury cases. Settlements may, in fact, be reached before a formal complaint is even filed. In many cases, however, settlements are the result of the pretrial and discovery process. Once the relevant facts are discovered, the parties may resolve the claims prior to trial. However, it all depends on what meaningful offers have been made, the strength of each party's case, and the inherent risks and benefits involved at trial. If your claims are unable to be resolved prior to trial, our San Antonio personal injury attorneys are prepared to fight diligently for fair compensation at trial.
