Everyone finds themselves in need of advice at some point in their life. For legal situations, it is always preferable to speak to someone who has knowledge about the court system and the laws so that any decisions you make in relation to your case can be of the more informed variety.
When it comes to situations that involve personal injury, the lawsuits that are filed in relation to those cases are civil proceedings. A civil case for personal injury is filed by the injured party or parties against the at-fault party in the accident.
For vehicle accidents, the other driver and their insurance company are the defendants, while the plaintiff, the one who files the suit, is the injured person, or the family of the injured person on their behalf.
