If you have been injured, you may not have the ability to think in a logical manner about whether to file a claim against the negligent party. Our lawyers fully comprehend your situation. We want to assist you in answering all your questions. For the sake of clarity, we have compiled a list of questions and answers pertaining to personal injuries.
Since your claim is not identical to another case, we urge you to call a local attorney who can provide you with details about your circumstances.
1. Determine whether a legal responsibility existed.
2. Discover whether the defendant was negligent in performing his or her responsibilities.
3. Find out whether your injuries were caused by an act of negligence.
4. Make sure the defendant has sufficient funds to compensate you for your injury or injuries
If you have proof that the four items previously mentioned apply to your situation, set up a free consultation with a lawyer.Consulting with a personal injury attorney lets you know if you have a legal claim against the negligent party and whether you should file a lawsuit.
Liability occurs when a person either acts, or fails to act, in accordance with his or her legal duties. If you are the victim of an automobile accident, your lawyer will determine if more than one party is liable for causing the collision.
Negligence occurs when someone performs legal duties in an irresponsible manner. Negligence also takes place when a party fails to perform legal responsibilities in a responsible way.
For instance, if you fall on a broken step in your apartment complex, the landlord is negligent because he or she should have taken measures to repair the step. Since the landlord or property manager did not repair the step, you have now incurred damages caused by negligence.
If you have lost money because of an injury caused by negligence, your damages may include lost wages, expensive medical bills, pain and suffering. Your insurance agent will not offer the full amount of legal recompense. When you file a lawsuit , a personal injury lawyer ensures that you receive fair compensation for all damages caused by the other party.
The state in which you reside has a statute of limitations law that declares the deadline for filing your lawsuit. If you do not file your claim before the statute of limitations expires, you no longer have the legal right to file a lawsuit. Since piecing together the details of your claim takes a certain amount of time, it is imperative that you contact a personal injury lawyer in your locality today.
