Q How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
Knowing whether or not you have a personal injury case can be tricky. Generally, talking to an attorney about the facts of your case is the best thing to do. Our lawyers would be glad to talk with you for free about your claim.
In the meantime, here are some guidelines you might also take into consideration:
Have you been injured due to someone else’s negligence? If you've been injured in a car accident, suffered a dog bite or slip and fall injury, been damaged by a defective drug or product, or in some other way harmed by someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation in an injury settlement for your personal injury, and for associated losses like time off from work, property damage, and even pain and suffering.
Is there an identifiable third party responsible for your injury, and can that be proven? If your attorney thinks they can prove another party’s negligence is responsible for your injury, then you may have a case.
Are there damages that can be shown and paid back to you? Things such as medical bills, lost time at work, or pain and suffering are generally required to get compensated in a personal injury case.
