What is required for a personal injury claim?

Personal injury claims involve an accident where an innocent victim was injured. The purpose of a claim is to ensure that the injured individual's medical expenses and other damages are covered by the party responsible for causing the accident.

Am I eligible for compensation?

In order to file a successful claim for compensation after an accident, you must be able to prove that you were injured in an accident, and that you were not responsible for causing your accident or injuries in any way. You must also be able to establish liability on the part of someone else, holding them responsible for your damages.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

Some personal injury damages, such as medical bills and property repairs, have a set and measurable monetary value. Other damages, however, such as pain and suffering, have no set value and must be determined by negotiation, or by a judge in court. That is why must hire a skilled personal injury lawyer who can fight to maximize your compensation.

How long will my case take?

There is no way to give an exact timeline for how long an injury case will take since it varies in each situation. A large factor in determining how long it will take is whether or not a settlement will be reached or if the case needs to be taken to court. There is no timetable for injury claims and lawsuits. It can be a matter of months or for more challenging situations it can last years. Having an attorney can help streamline the process and seek a resolution in a more timely manner.

When should I file my case?

As soon as possible is best. It can be a time consuming process so you want to get started now. There is also a Statute of limitations for how long you have to be able to seek compensation. Waiting too long may cause you to lose your right to compensation.

What damages can I recover in a claim?

By filing a personal injury claim, you can obtain compensation for medical bills, property repairs and replacement, mileage to and from doctor appointments, loss of income, impairment and disability, pain, and suffering. These are only some of the most common personal injury damages for which you could receive compensation. Speak with an attorney to learn what damages are able to be recovered for your specific case.

When should I file a personal injury claim?

According to the statute of limitations, you must file a personal injury claim within two years of the accident or of the moment your accident-related injuries appear. Otherwise, you forfeit your right to compensation.

Do I need to hire an attorney?

The best and most beneficial decision you can make at this time is to hire a lawyer. Your chances of obtaining maximum compensation are very low without the representation of a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer. Consult a member of our legal team today to take the first step toward fair compensation.
