Here's an overview of the personal injury litigation process:

Consultation and Case Evaluation:

The first step is to consult with a personal injury attorney who specializes in litigation. During the initial consultation, the attorney will evaluate the merits of your case by reviewing the details, evidence, and applicable laws. They will assess the potential liability of the other party and the damages you have suffered.


If your attorney determines that you have a valid case, they will launch a comprehensive investigation. This may involve collecting evidence, obtaining witness statements, reviewing accident reports, and consulting with experts to build a strong case on your behalf. Gathering evidence is crucial to proving the negligence or fault of the other party.

Filing the Lawsuit:

Once the investigation is complete, your attorney will file a formal complaint with the appropriate court, outlining the facts of the case, the legal claims being made, and the damages sought. The complaint will be served on the defendant, who will have a specified time to respond.


The discovery phase allows both parties to exchange relevant information and evidence. This may include written interrogatories, requests for documents, depositions, and expert witness testimony. Discovery helps both sides understand the strengths and weaknesses of each other’s case.

Settlement Negotiations:

During the litigation process, there may be opportunities for settlement negotiations. Your attorney will engage in discussions with the opposing party or their insurance company to seek a fair settlement. Negotiations may occur at various stages, and your attorney will provide guidance on whether a settlement offer is reasonable and in your best interests.

Pre-Trial Motions:

Before the trial, both parties may file motions seeking certain legal rulings or asking the court to exclude or admit specific evidence. These motions help shape the parameters of the case and can impact the trial proceedings.


If a settlement cannot be reached, your case will proceed to trial. During the trial, both sides present their arguments, call witnesses, present evidence, and cross-examine witnesses. A judge or jury will hear the case and determine liability and damages. Our attorney will vigorously advocate for your rights and present a compelling case on your behalf.

Verdict and Appeal:

If the trial concludes with a verdict, the court will determine the compensation you are entitled to receive based on the evidence presented. If either party is dissatisfied with the verdict, they may have the option to file an appeal to a higher court.

Throughout the personal injury litigation process, your attorney will provide guidance, legal representation, and support. They will fight to protect your rights, negotiate on your behalf, and strive to secure fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

It’s important to note that personal injury litigation can be complex and time-consuming. Having an experienced personal injury attorney by your side can significantly increase your chances of a successful outcome. Contact Awanna Scott Law today to begin your pursuit of justice.
