How are personal injury claims handled?

Most personal injury cases can be resolved by negotiation with the adjuster for the defendant's insurance company. However, if negotiations fail a Complaint at Law must be filed. These kinds of injuries are almost always pursued in a civil court, usually in the State's circuit court, in the County in which the incident occurred, though there are a number of exceptions to this rule. In Illinois and Indiana, the State courts are found in the County seat of every County in the State.
