I’m Not Sure I Have a Personal Injury Case. What Should I Do?

personal injury law book sitting on a wooden table with stethoscope and gavelIf you’ve been in an accident that results in serious injury, you want to know what your rights are to recover compensation—money damages for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages and hardship to you and your family as a result of another’s negligence.

The television ads, billboards and social media offer a bewildering and sometimes confusing message of “awards” of thousands or millions of dollars through promises of quick and easy settlements with the wrongdoer’s insurance company. You may want to learn what your rights are, how to go about pursuing compensation, but you’re not sure where to turn for reliable information, truthful help to learn what to do.

Wondering what you should do if you think you may be entitled to compensation but you’re not sure how to go about it? We recommend connecting with an experienced and trusted personal injury attorney.

Why Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney If You’re Not Sure You Have a Case?

You may be hesitant to reach out to a personal injury attorney for a number of reasons—will there be a fee to talk with one? How do I decide who to call? Rest assured – our firm does not charge for an initial consultation, no matter how much time is spent answering questions.

The reality is that if you want to ensure your rights are protected and you’re fully compensated for your injuries, working with a personal injury lawyer is in your best interest for a number of reasons, including the following:

Understanding Whether or Not You Have a Case

An experienced personal injury lawyer can review the facts of your accident and determine whether or not you have a viable personal injury case. He can gather necessary information to identify the responsible parties and also advise you whether your conduct may play a part in impacting that amount that you can recover from the other party. He will explain, for example, that under New York law, even if you are partially at fault in causing the accident, you can still recover money damages for a portion of the injuries caused by the other party’s negligence, under the doctrine of comparative fault.

Ensuring You Meet Important Deadlines

An attorney can also ensure that the claim is brought in a timely fashion. In some instances, such as in cases involving municipalities, you’ll have a very short time to move forward with bringing a claim. An experienced attorney will be aware of the applicable period of time applicable to your case and will be ready to do what is necessary to meet all deadlines.

Facilitating Investigation

If the attorney believes that you do have a viable personal injury case, it’s important to undertake further investigation as soon as possible. From capturing witness recollections to photographing conditions relevant to the accident-such as gathering data from the scene- investigation to strengthen your case should take place as soon as possible. A personal injury attorney can help you to get the investigation process moving quickly so you are well prepared with a strong case backed by all necessary data.
