What does Sue mean?
To sue is another term for filing a lawsuit against an alleged negligent party for some offense. To successfully sue and win an injury case the plaintiff must meet specific requirements. For instance, the plaintiff must prove the defendant owed them a duty of care, the defendant was negligent and the defendant's negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's injury or loss.
The United States is one of the most litigious societies and critics argue the public is much too hasty to rush to court and sue. Before you consider suing anyone for their negligent actions make sure you understand the cost, whether the loss is sufficient to justify a court case, what you hope to accomplish and the amount of time it could take to settle your case. Consider also, most civil lawsuits are settled out of court.
It is common for injured claimants to sue or to file injury claims for cases involving defective products, medical malpractice, nuisance, unsafe premises, breach of contract, unsafe products, discrimination, child custody, and property claims.
