Accidents Can Happen To Anyone
Accidents can happen in many ways. The type of incident that occurred will dictate how we handle the case. For example, if the injury happens at work – your claim will differ from a claim that arises from a car accident or due to medical malpractice. In cases we accept, we investigate so we can identify the cause and find the negligent parties to hold responsible. We can help our clients recover for things such as: trauma care, doctor visits, specialist visits, hospitalization, surgery, therapy, equipment, medication, lost earnings, and compensation for pain and disability. For victims who suffer injuries with long-lasting or permanent effects, you may require ongoing treatment. Special experts may be needed to evaluate and quantify your losses.
An Attorney Decides Whether to Accept you as a Client
If you suffer from an injury caused by a negligent party, contact a personal injury attorney so that you can find out if you have a claim. You may need to visit more than one law firm before you find a lawyer who is willing to take your case if the first attorney you consult does handle your type of case or does not have the knowledge or resources to handle your case.
Bring all the Evidence you have to your First Appointment
Make sure you bring all of your documents to the meeting. Documentation includes a copy of any incident report or investigation by law enforcement and a copy of what medical records you have. If you have a list of witnesses, share the information with the personal injury attorney. Bring any photographs and videos you took at the site where the accident took place or of your injuries. Your first consultation is an important event. Dress to make a good initial impression.
Most Personal Injury Cases Settle Out of Court
You may not realize that the majority of personal injury lawsuits never have a trial. Even though a court date is set by a judge, the plaintiff’s attorney and the defendant’s lawyer discuss the pros and cons of a case until they reach a settlement. If the parties are unable to agree upon an amount of monetary compensation, they may need to enlist the help of a mediator.
Obtain a Reasonable Estimate of your Damages
If you do not work with a personal injury attorney, you may find that you end up short changing yourself. Unless you have a deep understanding of personal injury laws and civil procedure, it is difficult to arrive at an accurate estimate of all losses and damages, physical, emotional and financial, that you may have suffered. If you have a serious disability caused by an act of negligence, you may no longer have the capacity to work at your former place of employment. Plus, obtaining a new job or career may pose insurmountable problems. Your personal injury attorney takes everything into account during your period of legal representation from determining whether you have a loss of future earning capacity to deciding the type of financial compensation you deserve.
You may not have Enough Evidence to Support your Case
Working with a personal injury attorney is not just about filing a lawsuit. Your attorney works hard to gather evidence to support your claim. For instance, you may not have any witnesses to substantiate your case. Your personal injury lawyer makes an effort to locate witnesses who know about your accident. In order to prove your case, you must have ample evidence. Working with a professional personal injury legal team helps assure that you have sufficient evidence to prove a lawsuit involving negligence. Whether you settle your case in court or via an out-of-court settlement, you still need to provide factual information to support your claim.
Work with an Attorney Instead of Taking Chances
Filing a negligence lawsuit involves detailed comprehension of the law. If you are not a lawyer, you should think about your option to hire an attorney. Winning your case depends on correct interpretation of the intricate details and damages surrounding your accident. If you are injured, contact a personal injury attorney today to find out whether you have a claim that could support a viable claim.
Important Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions
What is a personal injury case?
Several types of accidents can qualify. In general, you may have a personal injury claim if you were injured because another person was careless or negligent in their treatment of you. This can occur in many different ways. We often handle cases where our client was injured in a car accident, hurt by a defective product, or suffered because a business failed to properly train or supervise an employee. In these situations, the plaintiff (the victim) may be able to file a personal injury claim and recover for their injuries.
How do I know if I have a claim?
In order to have a claim, we need to be able to identify a responsible party who caused the accident and injury. You may not have physically visible injuries in every case. Other examples of injuries can be emotional distress, physical impairment, or pain and suffering.
Who can file an injury claim?
The person who is injured can file a claim for his or her personal injury. In some cases, the injured person’s children, spouse, or parents may also be able to assert a claim. Each state has different laws on what qualifies as personal injury. In a personal injury claim, the plaintiff (injured person) must provide evidence showing that the defendant is responsible for the damages incurred.
How much does it cost to speak with you about my situation?
You need not be worried about how much it costs to speak with a personal injury attorney. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer is free because our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee is based on an assumption that the attorney will be able to help you obtain a settlement or a trial verdict. If you receive compensation, your attorney is reimbursed from your settlement. If you do not receive compensation, then your attorney will not receive payment for their work either.
Is My Claim Time-Barred?
Every state has a statute of limitations, time limits on when you must file your claim. It takes time to build a case. Consequently, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You and your attorney must have time to study the evidence, look for witnesses, prepare documents and file a lawsuit at the courthouse. Filing a lawsuit does not mean that you will have an instant hearing before a judge. The date and time of your scheduled hearing may not occur for several months. Hopefully, you may never need to appear in court. You and your lawyer may be able to compel an out-of-court settlement.
Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?
If you suffer from an injury caused by negligence, you may need to hire a personal injury attorney. Otherwise, you risk losing your rights. A personal injury lawyer provides you with answers to your legal questions. Many personal injury cases involve complex legal issues requiring the professional interpretation of a qualified lawyer.
