What is a Discovery of Harm?

When it comes to personal injury lawsuits there are a lot of terms and ideas, such as the discovery of harm, with which most people are unfamiliar. These kinds of terms, though important, will usually require an attorney’s explanation in order for you to fully understand how they apply to your case. This is primarily because it is hard for most people to apply concepts such as the discovery of harm to their individual case because most people don’t have the requisite legal background.

Nevertheless, going into the personal injury process with a good base of knowledge will always be in your best interests. Understanding the legal terms you come across, and understanding what they might mean for your case, will allow you to be a much bigger part of the process, as well as allow you to make more knowledgeable decisions.

What is a Demand Letter?

The personal injury lawsuit process doesn’t always end in a trial, or even start with the filing of a lawsuit. In many situations, personal injury cases start, and end, with a well-constructed demand letter. What is the demand letter and how does it work? Let’s take a closer look.

Demand Letters: Your Case in Brief

The demand letter is something you, usually through your attorney, send to the other side in a lawsuit. (In a personal injury case, attorneys typically send demand letters to the insurance company representing the defendant.) The letter is essentially your case presented in a succinct form.
