How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You may be able to seek damages by either pursuing a claim with the negligent party’s insurance or filing a lawsuit against them in the city of Godfrey; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.
In order to succeed, you must be able to prove two critical items: damages and fault. For example, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must perform a wrongful act or default on their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by IL statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Godfrey personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to appropriately prove fault and seek damages. Contact us now.
Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.
These big insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that might 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. In our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
