If you have been injured in an accident, you may feel that hiring a personal injury attorney to work on your behalf is a good move. But before you do this, there is sure to be a burning question inside: do I really have a case?
Since you don’t know much about personal injury law, it is difficult to answer this question. For this reason, it would be in your best interest to contact an experienced attorney in your area.
Even though every situation is unique, there are particular factors that determine whether you have a case. These include but are not limited to:
- Your particular injuries or illness
- The type of treatment you require (hospitalization, surgery, etc.)
- If there is permanent damage to your body
- The potential for future medical problems
- Evidence available
As noted above, these are just some of the factors that a personal injury lawyer will consider. Upon meeting for an initial consultation, it will not take long to determine if you have a case.
Don’t assume that you do or do not have a case. Instead, contact a qualified attorney who can review the details – including the factors above – and provide you with advice on what to do next.
