Omaha, NE asked in Consumer Law for Nebraska

Q: I want to file a claim through PayPal but if I lose can I still sue or will it hurt my case? Should I sue first?

I hired a coder to do some work for me, I paid a lot of money for it. We did the payment through PayPal with a terms of service set up. In those TOS it did state if the project wasn't done by the given amount of time I am entitled to a refund. The coder has ghosted me and I've trier reaching out to them with no response. If I file the PayPal charges into a claim and for whatever reason - lose this dispute, if I try to sue, will it hurt my chances? What exactly can I do or should do or not do?
