Ding dong. It’s the doorbell. And standing on the other side of it is a process server handing you a piece of paper that tells you that you’re being sued. Now is when you panic. Except you don’t have to. Because you have us. We’re the Sodhi Law Group, and we are going to protect you from frivolous legal actions and expensive, potentially catastrophic monetary losses. Here is how to protect yourself in a personal injury lawsuit.
A personal injury claim against you, typically asserts that you owed the injured party a duty of care and that you breached that duty and it resulted in an injurious outcome for him or her. To defend a personal injury claim, you will try to show that you did not meet one of the requirements of the plaintiff’s claim. The Sodhi Law Group will show that at least one of these three things applies to you and your case:
It is also possible that a third-party or even the plaintiff themselves is, in fact, responsible for the damage or injury and thus liable for it. Even if you are partially at fault, it is extremely important to identify who else was at fault – and to what extent – so that the liability can be properly proportioned among the involved parties.
In the event that you are involved in an accident of some kind it is important to do everything you can to protect yourself in the event that a lawsuit is eventually filed. There are a few guidelines for what to do in an accident situation.
Human memory is famously unreliable so when an accident occurs, take notes. Who, What, When, Where and Why/How. Pay particular attention to what the other party tells the police, ambulance, and other people in their car. A clear memory supported by notes can be your biggest asset if you need to defend yourself.
Every case is unique. Memories are corrupted and compromised in an infinite number of ways, pictures can tell the tale of what happened. Make sure your photos show the weather conditions; the amount of traffic; the appearance of all persons involved in the injury; and the physical damage caused. This will help protect the integrity of your case.
