Many people wonder “Do I have a personal injury case?” or “How can I file a personal injury lawsuit?”. If you have these questions and would like to speak to an attorney who can help you evaluate your situation and provide you with your legal rights and options, fill out the form below. Before you do that however, you need to ask three questions before you consider filing a lawsuit against another person or party.
- Do you have a good case? You will need to have a “cause of action” for a court to support your position.
- Are you willing to go to mediation or consider a settlement if you file suit?
- Does the person or company you want to sue have the ability to pay?
You don’t want to file a lawsuit if the answer to any of these questions is no. Let’s take #3 above for example, the ability to pay. If the person you want to sue (the defendant) has no money or assets, you will not be able to collect even if you win a judgment against them. The courts do not collect your money for you and the money has to come from somewhere. So consider all these things before deciding you want to sue.
Do this require any money? NO!
Consultations are free so there is no charge to have your case reviewed by an attorney. If you have a personal injury case and an attorney decides to accept your case, you don’t need to pay any up front costs for their services. They work on a pay only if you win scenario, meaning if they recover money for you the law firm will take a percentage of the recovery for their services. This means that all people, regardless of financial status, get to work with the very best attorneys available. Other types of cases that are usually handled on a contingency fee basis include:
- personal injury
