If you’ve recently been in a car accident or have been struck by a car as a pedestrian, or perhaps had a botched surgery, you may have a personal injury case or a medical malpractice case.
We’ll basically evaluate your case to determine who is at fault for your injuries. This might seem very straightforward to you, but it’s not. The law is different for every type of case. What this means is that a doctor is going to owe you a different standard of care than somebody who is driving a vehicle who may hit you.
The statute of limitations is going to vary for every type of case. It’s dependent on a lot of factors. Those factors can include what your age is, what state you were injured in, or what type of injury you have.
There are many stages to a personal injury or medical malpractice case. Essentially, we will take the burden off of you and collect your medical records, and bills, and talk to witnesses, and create what’s called a demand package for the insurance company. At that point we’ll start a relationship with the insurance company and see if we do need to file suit.
If we do file a lawsuit, there are a whole bunch of stages that come with that, including discovery, and trial preparation, and finally trial. Settlement could happen during any of these stages.
