Have you recently been injured in an accident? Whether a car accident, slip & fall, or other type of personal injury case, you have the legal right to pursue compensation for your injuries. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive from clients regarding their personal injury cases.
Personal Injury FAQs:
Do I have a case?
In order to have a case, there must be liability, causation and damages. A successful personal injury case will have a third party who is liable to you. This means that another party has committed a negligent action which resulted in your personal injury. This negligence will have caused you harm or injury significant enough to justify the resources required for a successful claim.
Why do I need an attorney?
Only a competent personal injury attorney can accurately help you evaluate the likelihood that you have a case and can assist you in reaching a decision as to whether or not you want to pursue a claim. If you do wish to pursue the claim, an attorney will have experience in handling these types of cases. Our experienced attorneys with gather evidence, prepare for trial, and prompt the other side to offer a fair settlement.
Do I need to go to court?
In most cases, you do not need to go to court. However, if the defendant or the insurance company offer a settlement that is too low or questions of liability remain, the case may need to be decided by a jury or a judge. The decision to settle a case or file a lawsuit is a decision that an experience attorney can assist you with.
How soon after I am injured do I need to file a lawsuit?
It is important to contact a lawyer soon after your accident. The sooner your lawyer can get started working on your case, the sooner you will receive compensation for your case.
How do I file a personal injury claim?
The process for filing a personal injury claim varies from case to case. A personal injury attorney can advise you on the proper method for your unique case and ensure that your personal injury claim is filed correctly.
