Lawsuit FAQ

What is a Lawsuit?

A lawsuit is usually a formal written complaint to the court that generally alleges the negligence and other causes of action.

It is filed with the court and served on each defendant. Usually, a process server will serve it on behalf of the personal injury plaintiff.

Next, the defendant will either answer, demure or file a motion for summary judgment (MSJ). If the case is allowed to proceed, then we move on to the next steps.
