Should I Sue The Person That Caused My Injuries?

That is a good question.  If you were involved in a Massachusetts auto accident, slip and fall, dog bite, or any other kind of accident, and you were injured, you may need to sue the person(s) that caused your injuries.  But before you run to court and file a complaint, you need to consider and weigh whether it will actually benefit, or harm your case if you sue.  Here are some considerations to keep in mind, provided by nolo.com, when deciding to file suit:

You need to answer three fundamental — and fairly obvious — questions as part of deciding whether it’s worthwhile to bring a lawsuit:

  • Do I have a good case?
  • Am I comfortable with the idea of a compromise settlement or going to mediation?
  • Assuming a lawsuit is my best or only option, can I collect if I win?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, you probably won’t want to sue.
