To "sue" means to take legal action against another person or organization in order to seek compensation for an injury or loss that you have suffered.

In the context of a personal injury claim, it means that you are bringing a legal action against the person or organisation that you believe is responsible for your injuries.

When you decide to sue, you will be the claimant and the person or organisation against whom you are taking legal action will be the defendant. Your solicitor will be file a formal document called a "claim form" with the court, which sets out the details of your claim and the compensation that you are seeking.
