Filing the Complaint

The lawsuit starts when your lawyer files a “Complaint” with the court. A Complaint lays out what happened, the people you and your lawyer say are at fault (called defendants), and generally what losses you suffered.

When the Complaint is filed, the court clerk randomly assigns a judge to oversee your case. The judge issues a Summons, calling on the defendants to appear in court and answer your Complaint. Then your lawyer will have a process server personally deliver copies of the Summons and Complaint to each defendant.

The defendants will give the Summons and Complaint to their insurance companies, who will assign an attorney to fight the case. The insurance companies pay all the legal fees as well as any settlement on the defendant’s behalf. The defendants’ lawyers file “Answers” to the Complaint, denying your lawyer’s claims.
