If a person has been injured by another party’s negligence, it is possible that they may wish to file a monster lawsuit. A monster lawsuit is essentially a compensation claim that is filed against the individual or party who caused the injury. Monster lawsuits can be filed by individuals as well as companies (although many businesses are leery of them). In addition to seeking monetary compensation, the plaintiff’s attorney may also seek damages for suffering caused by the injury, future medical care expenses, and pain and suffering.
The lawsuit should be filed with the help of an attorney. Most attorneys will want an initial consultation, during which they analyze the case and discuss the best course of action. However, there are some who do not offer such consultations, and may instead require an applicant to make the case herself. Having an experienced attorney to represent an injured individual can go a long way toward ensuring that the lawsuit is handled properly.
It may be difficult for an individual who has suffered an injury to actually tell whether or not they have a case. An attorney, who has experience in personal injury cases, will be able to assess whether or not an individual has a case based on the details surrounding the incident. If the attorney believes there is likely a valid case, they will schedule a meeting with the individual in order to further discuss the matter.
During the meeting, the attorney will collect information regarding the incident. They will determine if the facts support a case. This includes looking into any weather conditions that may have played a part in the incident. Such factors may include tree limbs swaying in the wind, or anything that may have caused the injury to the individual. Additionally, records regarding the incident may be collected in order to see if insurance records show anything about the situation.
Once all of the facts have been gathered, the attorney will file the paperwork with the courts. Once the paperwork has been submitted, the injured party will have a certain amount of time in which to pursue the case. Generally, the court will hear the lawsuit against the defendant within a few months. If the case proceeds to trial, the plaintiff will seek damages from all parties involved. Sometimes the judge will even allow a settlement to be arranged without a trial.
In many instances, individuals will attempt to avoid a lengthy litigation process by allowing the case to be handled by an individual or legal firm. There are many different attorneys who handle these types of cases. These individuals typically handle several high profile lawsuits at one time. Some of the most prominent people who have used the services of such firms include Hulk Hogan, John Tutturro, and Don King. Each of these individuals ultimately ended up victorious in their claims.
