Notice Requirements legal definition: The purpose of “notice requirements” is to ensure all parties to a court action are made aware of said court action. Notice ensures that individuals who are being sued or criminally charged have due process.
There are three basic types of notice:
In personam, which refers to when notice is made personally (i.e.: a summons)
In rem, which is served through the mail, fax, or other reliable means of communication
Notice of publication, which is made in a newspaper or website that gives notice to people who may have an interest in the case but who are not a party to it
Notice requirements vary by state and jurisdiction. However, notice requirements come into play with nearly every type of civil and criminal action, including:
Car accident cases
Slip and fall cases
Workers’ Compensation cases
Defective Product cases
Medical Malpractice cases
And other personal injury lawsuits
