An Accident That Falls Under Personal Injury Law
First and foremost, we will need to ensure that the case in question falls under the umbrella of personal injury. It is not enough that a person was injured – we must also be able to prove that someone else was at fault. This may be due to their actions, inactions, or negligence. The party who caused the accident must have had a duty of care to the person who was injured, must have breached that duty of care, and the result must have caused harm.
In some cases, a person who is involved in an accident may experience a serious injury. This means they likely have a personal injury case. Why? Because there are significant financial damages with serious injuries, which likely means there will be a compensation claim. Consider that a person who is disabled as a result of their accident will likely be more likely to get significant compensation for their damages than a person whose sprained wrist healed within a week.
It Makes Sense from an Economic Standpoint
The time it takes to handle a case, and the out-of-pocket costs we cover, can add up quickly. In order for it to be worth our while to take a case on a contingency basis, we need to feel confident that there is the potential for a settlement or jury award that will be more than the cost of taking on the case. This may sound harsh, but if the eventual award or settlement is less than our attorney fees, then no one makes any money – including you.
