Frequently Asked Questions for Personal Injury Cases
How do I know if I have a case?
The best way to find out if you have a personal injury case is to speak with an attorney at you soonest convenience. Personal injury refers to any type of injury sustained due to another individual’s wrongful, negligent, or reckless conduct. Beyond the physical injuries that can be sustained, there is also such thing as emotional damage, which can come about from a personal injury case. Emotional damages tend to be slightly more complex and you should review this aspect of your case with a Palm Springs personal injury attorney from our firm.
How do I know that the responsible party will be held accountable?
In law, the responsibility for an act that caused bodily harm or damage to another is called “liability.” A skilled attorney can help you to establish liability so that you can gain compensation for your injuries. If the party is found to be “negligent” in causing the damage, such as in certain professions, he or she will be liable to pay damages to the injured. Our lawyers have years of experience in establishing liability and have helped countless clients reclaim their damages.
How much is my claim worth?
There is no average amount that a claim is worth; the value of the claim depends solely on the circumstances surrounding the injury or accident. If the injury is very extensive, the claim amount may be much higher than in an accident where the injured party was not hurt badly. In addition, if monetary and other types of damage are inflicted on the victim and his or her family, this will be taken into account.
