At Feroleto Law we understand that filing a lawsuit can be a stressful experience for you. We are compassionate with our clients but tough with insurance companies who are trying to deny your claims. We want to be sure that your top priority is healing while we work to get you what you deserve to help rebuild your life.

What Are the Stages of an Injury Lawsuit?

Stage one: Pre-Lawsuit Information Collection

Before filing an injury lawsuit, you can keep track of appointments and details about your injury. Your attorneys will be collecting information about your claim and speaking to the insurance company on your behalf. You should never speak to anyone about the accident except your attorney. Be sure to keep any documents you may receive in a folder that you can give to your attorney. Some claims can be settled prior to filing a lawsuit. Contact us today if you think you may need an injury attorney. We put clients first.

Stage two: Filing the Lawsuit and Discovery

After filing the lawsuit, “discovery” can take time. During this period, you should continue to focus on healing. As your personal injury lawyers, we will continue to focus on your case and fight on your behalf. The discovery phase allows for both sides to review evidence and documents that help support your case. Depositions or examinations under oath are typically taken during discovery so each party can tell their story. As this stage in the process progresses, we will fully explain to you what to expect.

Stage three: Potential Settlement Negotiations and Trial

Not every case goes to trial, but insurance companies know the attorneys at Feroleto Law are ready, especially our Buffalo child injury lawyer who is particularly vigilant in cases involving children. We will ensure that if the insurance company for the person who caused your child injury does not take responsibility for their actions and offer a fair settlement, we will go to trial to hold them accountable.

Every injury cases is different, so while the process is generally the same, it’s best to discuss the specifics of your case with our team at Feroleto Law. When it comes to a catastrophic injury, our Buffalo catastrophic injury lawyer will ensure you’re never left in the dark. We’ll explain what is involved at every step and answer any questions you may have.
