Personal Injury: Do you have a case?
If you have sustained an injury in a car accident, slip and fall, or any other kind of injury, you may be considering filing a personal injury lawsuit but you may also be wondering "Do I have a Case?"
In assessing your personal injury case, our attorneys are looking for three key factors:
1. LIABILITY: In plain terms - Who is responsible for the injury?Just because an injury occurs doesn't always mean another party is automatically liable. The factual circumstances surrounding the event leading to the injury must be carefully scrutinized within the framework of the applicable law.
2. DAMAGES:Properly identifying and addressing the injuries and damages proximately caused by an accident is key to any case. Damages can be both economic in nature (medical expenses, lost wages, etc.) and non-economic (pain and suffering, impairment, disfigurement, etc). Whatever the damages, they must be of a sufficient nature to justify legal action.
3. SOURCE OF RECOVERY:The only tangible remuneration our civil system allows for is in the form of monetary compensation. As such, there must be an available source from which sufficient monetary compensation can be obtained: Insurance, seizable assets, etc.
