Filing a lawsuit can be scary. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can be even scarier, especially because you’ll have to prove what you’ve lost as a result of the injury. One thing you’ll have to prove is the income you’ve lost because of the injury.
How do you calculate that lost income, though? Before you can get to that, you’ll need to know the difference between attorney fees and costs. You may also get an offer to settle out of court, and, if you do, you’ll want to be sure you discuss your options with an attorney.
