We can also help you to understand common claim mistakes, what your case is worth, and negotiate a settlement on your behalf.
Maximizing Your Compensation Award
The basis of most accident and injury claims is negligence. Negligence is the failure to act with a proper duty of care, and when another’s negligence leads to your harm, you have the right to recoup compensation from that party. In order to recover compensation, you will need to prove:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care;
- The defendant breached the duty of care owed to you;
- The breach of duty of care was the direct cause of your accident and injuries; and
- You suffered damages as a result, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
When you work with our law firm, we will work hard to maximize your compensation award. We fight for your right to recover compensation for the full value of your economic and non-economic losses.
Do Not Wait too Long to Take Action
Our lawyers understand that after suffering a serious injury, it can be difficult to know what to do. We also know that taking action can be complicated; you are in the process of recovering and you do not have time to think about the legal process of filing a claim, investigating your accident, and proving fault.
However, you do not want to wait too long to take action. If you wait too long to file a claim, you risk having your claim delayed, or even denied altogether. This is because there is a statute of limitations in place that puts a cap on the amount of time that you have to act after an accident. Acting quickly is not just important because it ensures that you operate within the statute of limitations, but also because the earlier you act, the more likely it is that evidence essential to your case will be preserved. A delay in action could result in the destruction of evidence.
