If an accident caused by a reckless person resulted in any type of personal injury, you don't have to suffer in silence. It is possible to fight and obtain justice.
In many cases, it can be determined that one person acted negligently and ended up causing the injuries to another. In these situations, victims have an absolute right to file a lawsuit for the damages they suffered.
If you are unsure whether you have a valid case, contact our injury attorneys today by filling out the form on this page or by calling our helpline. You will have the opportunity to schedule a 100% free legal consultation to evaluate your case.
There is no requirement that an injured individual injured in an accident seek legal representation. However, many individuals choose to hire a law firm to represent their interests after a personal injury for two basic reasons:
Insurance companies work hard to discourage personal injury victims from obtaining legal representation because they know from studies that show that people who hire an attorney consistently receive substantially more compensation for their claim compared to those who settle their cases on their own.
Another reason people hire a legal representative is that there are often post-settlement problems that can prevent the payment of financial compensation.
Virtually all personal injury or wrongful death claims at Justice Guardians are made on a contingency fee basis.
Through a contingency fee arrangement, our legal fees are set forth in a written document at the time we are retained by a client.This payment structure is based on the principle that we only get paid when we are able to secure a financial settlement on your behalf. If there is no compensation, no fee is charged.
The value of a personal injury case consists of both monetary and non-monetary damages or losses. Financial damages refer to medical bills, lost earnings and property damage. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, physical impairment, deformity and lack of companionship or reduced quality of life.
There are other elements that affect the value of a claim such as: the age of the victim, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the vicarious liability that gave rise to the accident.
Although we must admit the facts in each case, the goal is to present the most favorable claim to the court that will evaluate your claim.
Many personal injury claims are settled without a legal claim being raised in court. At Justice Guardians, we never pretend that disputes are settled simply or quickly, so each case is prepared as if it were going to trial.
From the instant you hire us for a lawsuit, we gather invaluable information to establish how an accident took place and how the behavior of one or more individuals may have influenced the incident. This means gathering police documents, expert statements, photographs of the scene and even medical reports and receipts for all expenses.
