How Can I File a Personal Injury Claim in Greenville, NC?

Filing a personal injury claim in Greenville, NC begins with our personal injury lawyers conducting a thorough investigation of the accident or incident that injured you. This includes securing the evidence needed to identify the parties at fault for your injuries and explaining how their actions caused the harm that you suffered in a persuasive legal argument.

Our attorneys start claims by sending demand letters to the other side’s insurance company. The letter outlines the facts of the case and explains why the other party should be financially liable for the injuries and losses you have sustained. A demand letter may initiate a negotiation process, with both sides working towards an agreeable settlement figure to resolve the claim.

If a settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys may need to file a civil lawsuit in Pitt County Superior Court on your behalf to preserve your right to pursue compensation. If that is necessary, the litigation process begins with the pleadings stage, where your allegations and the other side’s defenses are set forth. That is followed by the discovery process, where both sides exchange evidence and information and depose witnesses.

Assuming the case does not settle, a lawsuit may eventually be scheduled for a trial. A settlement can still be reached as the case is being prepared for trial. At trial, both parties present their evidence and arguments to a jury. Our attorneys will seek to convince the jury that it was more likely than not that the other side caused your injuries and losses. At the end of the trial, the jury will issue a verdict. If the jury decides in your favor, the jury will also decide how much compensation the at-fault party owes you.

Most of our clients prefer to avoid the stress and uncertainty of a trial if possible. Our Greenville injury attorneys are experienced negotiators and typically are able to settle cases without going to trial.
