How do you get a personal injury settlement?


Answer by  mediajunkie (592)

You will have to hire a lawyer to file a civil suit with the party that has injured you. "Injury" can be physical or emotional, although the latter is harder to prove. If several people were hurt together with you, you can band together and file a class-action lawsuit. Many personal injury suits end up settling out of court.

There are at least two ways to get a personal injury settlement after suffering an injury. You can handle the case yourself (insurance companies love this) and you likely won't get much. Instead, hire an attorney and you will probably do much better if they settle your case.
