What does it mean to “file suit,” and why do we do it?

To “file suit” means filing legal paperwork with your respective courthouse. Filing suit does not take place unless you are filing a lawsuit against the party at fault. There are steps which can be taken in pre-trial to circumvent filing suit, but if no settlement can be reached then you may have to file a law suit in court against the other party. If there are multiple parties involved you have to file a lawsuit against all of them.

As the client, you give us the authorization to file suit once all other options during pre-suit have been exhausted. When you file a case in court it means that you have attempted other options with the insurance company or other parties involved, and were unable to reach any settlement. You then move forward with the case and take it to trial.
