Hello everyone. This is Jim Parish. I am an accident attorney in northern Virginia with officers in Manassas and Fairfax. Today I would like to answer the question “do I have to file a lawsuit in order to recover money from my injuries?”
The answer is no. The vast majority of personal injury claims, especially those coming from automobile or motorcycle accidents or some other type of accident, are settled without having to go to court. And by settled, I mean, there’s a negotiated resolution reached between the injured party’s attorney, and the person who caused the accident insurance’s company. I hope that’s a helpful answer. Thank you.
