Do I have a personal injury case? Do I have to go to trial?

If you’re injured as the result of someone’s negligence, the negligent party is expected to pay for the total damages that you have incurred.  Personal injury lawsuits are designed to redeem compensation for past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and any lost wages.  However, not every injury justifies a lawsuit.  That decision will rest on multiple factors and considerations such as individual state laws and the ability to collect damages. To determine if your injury is significant enough for a personal injury case, it’s always recommended to get the professional opinion of reputable personal injury firm such as Action Law Offices, S.C.  Most personal injury attorneys today will offer a risk-free, one-time consultation.  Take advantage of the free consultation; it will be the most efficient and effective method towards evaluating a potential lawsuit.

Sample items your attorney will likely review:personal injury questions

  • How serious is your injury?
  • What are the risks and benefits of pursuing a lawsuit?
  • What kind of damages are you expecting to recover?
  • Who is at fault?
  • What evidence is available to prove your case?
  • Does the person or persons responsible for your injury have the financial means to pay for your potential judgment? (What kind of insurance and/or assets does the defendant may have.)
  • How does your case fall within the Wisconsin statute of limitations?

Pre-trial settlement

Planning for a pre-trail settlement is a crucial part of any sound legal strategy.  This means that you could potentially get the compensation you deserve without ever having to go in front of a judge or jury.  According to US Government Statistics, approximately 95 percent of pending lawsuits will end in a pre-trial settlement. Another statistic states that 90 percent of cases that do go to trial end up losing.  For the other ten percent that go to trial and win, the payoff tends to be much higher.  (Law Dictionary: Pre-trial Settlement Percentage: Statistics on Personal Injury Settlements.)

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.
