Do You Have a Case?
January 26th, 2016|
If you’ve been in a serious car accident, you may be wondering if you have a personal injury case. Well, it depends. A number of factors must be considered in determining whether or not a lawsuit is a good idea. Only an experienced attorney can make that determination after reviewing the specific circumstances of your situation.
Here’s are three questions to consider when deciding whether or not a lawyer may be able to help:
- Were you injured? If you did not sustain any injuries as a result of your accident, a personal injury lawyer may have a hard time with your case.
- Was the accident someone else’s fault? If the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you might have a personal injury claim. If you’re not sure who was at fault, consult the accident report or contact the reporting officer. An attorney can also help you determine fault with a copy of the accident report.
- Did you sign a settlement agreement with the insurance company? If you’ve already accepted a settlement offer from the insurance company, unfortunately we can’t do a lot to help you. That’s why you should never sign anything from the insurance company until you’ve consulted with an attorney.
