When you file a lawsuit, you are asking a judge to award you damages due to the injury and damages that you have suffered. If you are unsure if the accident was your fault, it is best to consult an attorney. A personal injury lawyer can help you determine who is at fault and what type of damages you are entitled to receive.
When an accident involved the fault of more than one party, the law can get complicated depending on the state that you live in. Contact a lawyer to learn more about your state laws and how they may impact your case.
