Common Causes of Cases We Pursue.
When mistakes occur, people can get injured. Careless mistakes while driving, manufacturing products, or even in medical facilities can result in injury or death.
According to a study by John Hopkins, medical mistakes cause up to a quarter-million deaths each year, unfortunately making it one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
- Malpractice: A professional’s failure to use the ordinary skills of members of that profession
- Negligence: Careless or intentional behavior that leads to harm
- Nuisance: Any conduct that creates a health or safety hazard
- Defective Products or Premises: A manufacturer’s failure to keep their products or premises up to current code and safety regulations
- Recklessness: Any person who willfully took an action that is risky or could cause harm
Talking to the Insurance Company.
The worst thing you can do for your case is give a recorded statement to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Their goal is to reduce the amount of compensation they owe you or throw out your claim altogether. They are trained to encourage you to answer their questions in a way that would be unfavorable to your case.
It would be best to tell them to contact your attorney, who will be taking overall communication. You do not want to let them back you into a corner and ruin your case.
Filing Your Case.
The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file your personal injury case. Personal injury cases can vary in the amount of time you have. For instance, you may not have as much time for a medical malpractice or accident case against a municipality. Generally speaking, you will have four years to bring your case forward.
The best thing you can do for your case is to hire an attorney right away, so you do not have to worry about cutting it close to the time limitations. Your attorney will ensure you are adhering to all the time constraints while evidence is collected, witnesses are contacted, and your medical treatment is being completed.
