"Do I Have a Case?" When It Comes to Personal Injury Claims
It’s a question every victim has asked themselves, their friends and family and most importantly, their lawyer: “Do I have a case?” When it comes to personal injury claims, it’s best to know the ground rules of what constitutes a case and if pursuing legal action is likely to work out in your favor in the end. At Monge and Associates, we boast substantial settlements on behalf of clients who have suffered life-changing injuries — often due to a defendant’s negligence. If you’re considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, we encourage you to read up on the ground rules below. Why? Because you want to win!
According to the American Bar Association, the first thing we need to do is take stock of damages and liability. While negligence may be the driving force behind many personal injury lawsuits, there is the possibility that “strict liability” or “intentional wrongs” may be to blame. To determine this, however, those looking into a personal injury lawsuit should consider hiring a firm like Monge and Associates to help you determine who is to blame and how the lawsuit should proceed. Why? Because you want to win! For example, our skilled legal team has achieved a record $800,000 settlement after a trial that stemmed from a multi-vehicle accident and subsequent surgeries for the plaintiff.
The decision to file a lawsuit is always one taken with extreme care. It has come as a result of due diligence by yourself and your legal team and while the outcome is never known, the preparation process has left no stone unturned. That’s why it’s so important to find the right personal injury law firm; you need legal experts on your side who’ve gone to court time and again and know how to best argue your case and show why the defendant named in your lawsuit is responsible for your injuries. That often entails injuries sustained during car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accidents; DUI-related crashes, slip-and-fall cases, workers’ compensation and more. The best way to determine if the unfortunate situation you’ve endured is something that will stand up in a court of law is to find the most appropriate personal injury law firm for the job. Why? Because you want to win!
