Common Personal Injury Terminology
Personal injury lawsuits themselves are complex, but once you add in the legal terminology, you could find it extremely confusing. Having an attorney by your side can make the process easier, but you should still do your own due diligence in trying to understand the process – especially the terms that will be used to explain your claim to you.
To help better understand the process, we have compiled a list of common personal injury terms that you will experience after filing a claim. These terms will be used often in court, in documents pertaining to your case and will often be used by your own attorney. If ever you are unsure what your attorney is discussing with you, it is important to ask questions so that your attorney and yourself are on the same page.
