Can I file a second lawsuit for the same case?

If you have filed a lawsuit against a negligent driver and either lost your case or did not receive as much money in your settlement as you wanted, you may think about filing a secondary lawsuit against the same plaintiff for the same damages. Unfortunately, this is prohibited under the principle of res judicata, a Latin phrase that means, “The thing has been decided.”

If you have questions about your options for filing a second lawsuit, contact a Sheboygan auto accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
