Can You Be Sued for Damages When You Are the Victim?
Generally, this rarely happens. But there are situations where the defendant files a counterclaim against the victim (or plaintiff). This is very likely to happen in two-vehicle crashes, where both parties were injured. When one of the injured parties chose to file a personal injury claim against the other party, this person can file a counterclaim if they think that the plaintiff caused the vehicular accident. This doesn’t mean you should shy away from filing a personal injury claim, though. We can provide you with legal advice on whether a personal injury claim is the best course of action for your case situation. To get a free consultation today, call us at (877) 871-3256.
