What happens in a personal injury case?
In a personal injury case, a claim is made against the party responsible for the accident. If the person carried liability insurance, then the claim is typically first reviewed by an insurance adjuster. The insurance will either make a settlement offer of payment or deny liability. If the settlement offer is insufficient or if the insurance denies liability, then you can file a lawsuit through the court to seek a judgment for your damages.
