Although the lawsuit may not require courtroom litigation, being prepared to take the case to a jury is paramount in personal injury claims. Determining the extent of the injury as it relates to the impact on a person’s life and future medical care can be a time-consuming task for a person without medical experience or expertise.

Do you have all of the pertinent medical records? How do you know?
Did you miss the one entry that changed the category from “soft tissue” injury to “hard” injury?
