To determine whether you have a personal injury case, it’s essential for us to consider a few factors:

Injury

Have you sustained an injury or suffered harm as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence? If yes, the severity of the injury and its impact on your life will be important factors.

Liability

Can we establish that someone else (individual, company, or entity) is legally responsible for your injury? This often involves proving negligence or intentional wrongdoing on their part.

Evidence

What evidence supports your claim? This may include medical records, eyewitness statements, photos or videos of the accident scene, and any other relevant documentation. Is there evidence that supports the defense positions or refutes your claim?

Statute of Limitations

Personal injury cases are subject to statutes of limitations, which limit the time you have to file a lawsuit. It’s important to determine whether you’re still within the applicable time frame.

Damages

What damages have you suffered as a result of the injury? These may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic losses.

Consultation with an Attorney

It’s often beneficial to consult with a personal injury attorney who can evaluate your case based on its specifics and provide guidance on your legal options. If you believe you may have a personal injury case, it’s advisable to consult with a qualified attorney who can assess your case based on the specific circumstances and applicable laws.

Our goal is to assess the viability of your case as soon as possible. Therefore, we conduct an initial consultation with you and a preliminary investigation of your case. The primary purpose of our initial conference and interview is to get a chance to meet one another and obtain information about you and the circumstances surrounding your potential case.

The investigation will vary depending on the nature of the incident of your injury. Generally, when we interview you for the first time, we will obtain information from you to help us in our investigation. We will also begin taking statements from witnesses, photographing or videotaping people or places or things, checking on criminal records, obtaining medical information, obtaining work history and wage information, and more.

If we determine you do not have a case, we will let you know as quickly as possible that we cannot handle your case. We will also let you know that seeking a second opinion is a good idea, and we will make sure to outline the applicable statute of limitations in your case.
