When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Please contact The Ahearne Law Firm, PLLC at (845) 986-2777 for an initial consultation and case evaluation.

When you get into an accident, or someone causes you harm, you can seek redress and compensation by filing a personal injury case. There are various situations which result in personal injuries; however, not all of these lead to liability. Some of the more common types of personal injury lawsuits are:

  • Car Accidents
  • Brain Injuries
  • Severe Bodily Injury
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Product Liability
  • Infant and Fetal Injury
  • Construction Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Recreational Activity Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Insurance Claims
  • No-Fault Insurance Claims

Car or road accidents make up the majority of personal injury cases in the United States. In most cases, it’s due to negligence, recklessness, or driving under the influence. If a driver is proven guilty, the court will hold him responsible and make him pay for the injuries the complainant had sustained due to the accident. Mild to severe injuries can be compensated depending on the court’s ruling.

Because of the shortage of doctors and healthcare professionals in the majority of hospitals across America, more and more individuals are filing medical malpractice suits against doctors and hospitals. The claims range from simple negligence to severe cases which may have resulted in the injury, disability, or even death of a patient. A medical malpractice case claims that the healthcare or medical professional should have done something else or provided better care and treatment to the patient. Additionally, the cases also cover the professional being remiss or negligent in his duties.

Establishment owners must keep their premises safe and hazard-free to patrons and even passers-by. There are building codes that need to be followed to ensure that public places and commercial ones comply with the strictest safety standards. For examples, stairs should have hand rails and toilets should have non-slip floors to prevent accidents from occurring. If a customer slips or falls because the type of flooring used did not follow regulation, the customer may file a personal injury case against the restaurant owner. There’s no assurance that the courts will rule in the customer’s favor, but at least he or she will be able to seek compensation for injuries.

Many lawsuits are not pursued by the injured parties or their families because they do not realize their accident and injury was the fault of another person. It is wise to look for signs of a potential personal injury for which a lawsuit could protect you financially:

  • Someone Else Caused the Accident
  • Negligence Caused the Accident
  • You Have Lasting Emotional Distress
  • The At-Fault Party Does Not Have Liability Insurance
  • The Accident Led to Property Loss and Damages
  • You’re Unable to Work Because of Your Accident

If you or a family member have suffered an accident or injury, you and/or your family member may be entitled to money damages.

We take your calls and meet with your family personally to answer all your questions. We will press your insurance company for the coverage you are entitled to and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Personal injury cases require a wealth of experience, and a network of proven experts, including doctors and medical experts, accident recreation experts, insurance investigators, private investigators, and the resources necessary to fight large insurance companies.

All of our personal injury cases are contingency cases, which means you pay nothing out of pocket and we do not get paid unless you get paid.
