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 Pierpont; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.
In order to succeed, you must meet two essential elements: damages and fault. For instance, 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 responsible for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth under MO statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Pierpont personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have enough evidence to appropriately seek damages and prove fault. 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 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. In our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
