How to Know if You Have a Personal Injury Case
You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the Glen Carbon courts; however, it may difficult to know if you have a right to a claim in either situation.
In order to succeed, you must meet two essential elements: fault and damages. For example, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must perform a wrongful act or default on their duty to protect others from dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held responsible for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth under IL statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Glen Carbon personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have enough evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.
In many cases, claims for personal injury are settled out of court before ever reaching the trial stage; however, we will never hesitate to go to trial if large insurance companies refuse to pay what’s fair.
These big insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that may not be in your long-term best interests. Without effective legal representation, you may lose out on gaining sufficient compensation to cover your losses.
Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
