First Questions about your Personal Injury

Topics
  • Damages- Compensations for Personal Injury

    When someone else’s careless or intentional action causes you harm, it’s not enough to show that the person should be held legally liable in connection with the underlying incident. If you’re going to make a successful personal injury claim, you also need to show exactly how the other party’s wrongful conduct affected you -- the nature and extent of your injuries and other compensable losses. In legalese, that means you need to establish your “damages.”  

  • How Long Do I Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim

    When you’re injured through someone else’s careless or intentional action, you almost certainly have a right to bring a claim against the at-fault party, but the clock is ticking. Most insurance claims need to be made soon after any incident that triggers coverage, and if you’re taking the matter to court, every state has laws on the books that place a strict time limit on your legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit.

  • Should I File a Personal Injury Claim

    You’ve been injured in an accident, and you’re pretty sure that someone else -- whether that’s a person or a business -- is to blame.  Does that mean it’s time to send a demand letter or hire an attorney? Not necessarily. Instead, it may make sense to take a step back and ask yourself a few questions. In this section, we’ll discuss the key factors to consider when you’re deciding whether it’s a good idea to file a personal injury claim. 

  • What is a Personal Injury Claim

    Learn more about the basics of a personal injury claim, and common types of personal injury claims. We’ll bring you up to speed on the basics of personal injury claims: what they are, who can file them, how the process works, how long it might take, and more. 

  • What is My Personal Injury Claim Worth

    This question is on the minds of most (if not all) personal injury claimants. Unfortunately, while it’s one of the most common questions we get, it’s also one of the most difficult to answer. Figuring out what a personal injury claim is worth means gathering all pertinent records, figuring out the insurance coverage picture, investigating fault, and getting a feel for each side’s willingness to settle (or the likelihood that they’ll dig in their heels and fight). In this section, we’ll dive into the factors that are most determinative in valuing any personal injury claim.

  • Who is at Fault for Your Personal Injury

    After some kinds of accidents, while it’s clear that you’ve been injured, it’s not so obvious who is legally at fault for what happened. And even when you’re pretty sure who’s to blame, establishing legal liability (proving who’s at fault) can still be a big hurdle to clear in any personal injury claim. In this section, we’ll explain the basics of fault after an accident or injury, including how it’s established.
