Seeking a Default Judgement in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Posted on:4/3/2013
A seasoned personal injury lawyer will evaluate your case before advising you of your next step. Any personal injury lawyer who offers you a quote or an opinion over the phone regarding what your case is worth either doesn’t know what he is doing or is doing a sales job on you.


In either case, you should run in the other direction as fast as your legs will carry you! Seek the assistance of an experienced personal injury  lawyer.

 

Once personal injury lawsuit is filed with the court chosen by your personal injury  Attorney, court personnel will issue a summons, or a citation, officially informing each defendant that he or she has been sued. After the defendants receive the summons and a copy of the complaint, each defendant has a set period of time in which to file an answer to the petition or complaint. Your personal injury lawyer will ensure that the defendants are served with the summons and a copy of the complaint according to the Civil Procedure Code of your state.

 

The exact time period that a defendant has to respond to a petition varies by jurisdiction. However, a defendant must file a responsive answer to the complaint within the time frame allowed by his particular jurisdiction’s rules and statutes. If a defendant does not respond to the complaint, your personal injury attorney will seek a default judgment against that defendant.
