If You Want to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit, Should You Tell the Other Person?

An auto accident can leave someone with serious injuries that may require expensive medical treatment that can become a major burden for a person to handle. However, there may be legal action available to help the injured person receive compensation from the party at fault. Before filing a claim, however, the accident victim should warn the individual named as the defendant.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident and are considering filing for compensation, you may want to consult with a legal advisor before you file. For more information regarding your options, contact a Waukesha car accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.

How to Warn the Other Party

A person who is planning to file a personal injury claim after an auto accident should prepare for the lawsuit in the following ways:

  • Send out a warning to anyone potentially at fault for the accident
  • Provide basic information such as time and place of the accident
  • Inform that person about the intention to sue

When a car accident victim warns the party at fault for the incident about an impending lawsuit, he or she allows the defendant to gather whatever information they need before the lawsuit. Also, the claimant allows that person to prepare for the case with their legal representation.
