How Can I Tell If My Case Is Worth Pursuing?

If you are injured in an accident, whether it is a car accident, trip and fall, or any other incident where you are hurt, you need to determine whether your case is worth pursuing. This decision should only be made after consulting with an attorney who specifically handles personal injury matters.young lawyer in the office. attorney for the law.

A good personal injury attorney will look at three main factors in deciding whether to pursue your claim. These factors are discussed below.

1. The Likelihood of Proving Liability

In order to successfully bring a personal injury case, you need to show that the other person or entity is legally liable for the incident / accident that caused your injuries. This is known as legal liability. Essentially, you must show that the other person or entity was negligent by failing to use reasonable care.

2. The Seriousness of Your Injuries

Another major factor in determining whether your case is worth pursuing is the extent of your injuries and damages resulting from the accident.  For example, if you were involved in an auto accident but sustained no bodily injuries, then you probably do not have a personal injury claim. At the same time, injuries can range from a relatively minor injury to permanent disability or even death. The greater the extent of the injury, the greater value your case will have.

3. The Difficulty of Your Case

Not every personal injury case is easy to win. Personal injury claims can be complex and very challenging. To successfully bring resolution to these cases, a good attorney will need to invest a great deal of time and money in preparing your case for trial.

Ultimately, a personal injury attorney will need to look at each of these three factors and determine whether the case is worth pursuing.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
