When you have suffered an accident or injury, you may wonder what legal rights you have. And while there are many factors to consider, like timelines for filing cases, what information you must have in order to file, and the like, the initial question is: are you entitled to make a personal injury claim?
The simple answer to this question is, if you have contracted an illness or suffered an injury because of the negligence of another person or entity, you should be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
From the outset, there is no way to guarantee or even necessarily estimate the damages you may receive at the conclusion of your personal injury case, but there are steps you can take to put yourself and your case in the best position possible to win your claim. Make sure to document your case and your injuries extensively. Take note of details surrounding the accident, get contact information for any possible witnesses, and keep all medical records surrounding your injury. Don’t sign any papers presented to you by the insurance company without consulting an attorney.
Consult with an attorney as soon as you feel up to it, because there are deadlines and timelines that must be met in order to protect you and your case. Your attorney will be able to review any potential negligence of the other party in order to help you analyze your case.
