How To Determine Whether You Have A Valid Personal Injury Claim

A question that is often asked by those who have been in an accident is whether they have a case. Whether you have been involved in an automobile accident, a slip-and-fall incident or another type of occurrence in which you were injured, an essential issue is the determination of whether you have a case that can be pursued.

Talk with a lawyer from our firm to get the help you need.

Critical Information For Assessing Your Potential Claim

What Specific Type Of Injury Did You Suffer?

Another important element is to determine the specific injuries suffered as a result of the accident. Bringing in any documents relating to your medical care to the initial consultation would be beneficial.

On What Legal Basis Can I Pursue My Case?

One thing that can be difficult for people to understand is that although they have suffered a genuine injury, their accident may not meet the necessary legal standard that places responsibility upon someone else for their injuries. It is essential to consult with us ― we are well-versed in the laws that apply to the circumstances of your particular accident and your injuries. We will fairly and honestly assess your case to establish whether the legal requirements have been met to enable you to go forward.

Who Was At Fault?

Provide us with a detailed description of exactly what happened. If you made any notes at or shortly after the time of the incident, it’s always beneficial to bring those, as well as photographs, accident reports or any other documentation that you may have when you meet with us to review your case.

What Is Your Prior Medical History?

If you have had similar injuries in the past, this could be important to the case. It is essential that you are candid and forthcoming with any such information at the time of your initial consultation. Such medical history may not necessarily be bad news ― a prior medical condition is of less significance if you fully recovered from the previous similar problem. If, on the other hand, your prior medical history will impact your case in a negative way, this needs to be factored in at the time of your consultation.
