Where Should My Lawsuit Be Filed?

We get asked lots of times if somebody has a case, where would their lawsuit be filed? There’s lots of rules on where a lawsuit is filed. Those rules are called venue or jurisdiction. But typically, a lawsuit gets filed in the venue or the county where either the injured person lives or the defendant lives.

Now, again, there are lots of different rules that cover venue. But typically, you’ll file a lawsuit where you live or where the other side lives, or potentially where the injury or accident occurs.
