What is a Complaint in a Personal Injury Matter?

A Civil Complaint initiates a lawsuit by laying out for the Court the claim for compensation from the damages caused by the defendant. The Complaint outlines all of the Plaintiff’s causes of action and the relevant facts associated with the matter including the who, what, when, where, and how of the incident. Additionally, the complaint lays out the all theories of how Defendant is responsible, as well as, the damages alleged to have been suffered by the Plaintiff. Further, the Complaint lays out the identities of the parties, their relationship to the matter and the court where the action is being filed. Federal Courts and state courts have specific rules governing their Courts and requirements for what a Complaint must contain to satisfy that Court’s rules.
