Whether an accident occurs on someone else's property or in a motor vehicle, chances are that if you suffer injuries in an accident, you will have questions about how your medical expenses will be covered. In most cases, the answer is simple: your insurance or the other person's insurance will cover the cost. But in some cases, such as those involving negligent parties, compensation can come from a civil settlement.
If you've never filed a personal injury lawsuit before, you may think that you can do it on your own. After all, how hard can it be? But thinking this is perhaps the worst way to start your road to recovery as it could cost you a lot more than compensation. It could cost you your best chance at claiming the financial security you may need to return to a relatively normal life later on.
