Can I file a second lawsuit against the same defendant?

If you filed a civil lawsuit against the party you believed was responsible for your accident and you either didn’t win or didn’t get enough financial compensation, you may wonder if it is possible to take legal action against the same defendant a second time. Unfortunately, the legal principle res judicata prevents plaintiffs from taking legal action a second time for the same case under the same circumstances.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident case and has additional questions about whether or not you can file a second lawsuit, contact a Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
