Treasure Island Personal Injury Attorney
In certain circumstances, members of society owe a duty of care to others. This duty of care might be a doctor providing a certain standard of care to a patient, a business owner providing a duty of care to a customer by maintaining a safe walking space, or a driver owing a duty of care to another road user by obeying the law and operating their vehicle in a reasonably safe and prudent manner. If this duty of care is violated and the driver or other party causes an injury to someone, the injured plaintiff has the right to seek compensation for their damages in a personal injury claim, which is a legal demand for compensation. If you were hurt in any type of traffic collision or other unintentional injury, such as a dog attack or slip and fall, the Treasure Island personal injury attorney at Reep Coleman & Stubbendorff is here to help you hold the other party accountable.
The Personal Injury Claim Process
A personal injury claim begins with your lawyer reviewing your case to ensure that it is worth pursuing. If it is not, most lawyers will not touch it since personal injury attorneys almost always take on cases based on a contingency fee; if you do not win your claim, they do not get paid. The second step in a personal injury claim is determining fault. In a traffic collision, this means working with police, crash scene forensic experts, witnesses, and other parties. Next comes establishing the plaintiff’s damages, then filing the claim itself with all liable parties, and finally settlement negotiations. If the final settlement offer is not acceptable, your attorney will file a lawsuit. An out of court settlement is still possible at this stage, as only a few cases out of 100 ever make it to trial. However, if your lawsuit makes it to court, your lawyer will represent you during the hearing.
