How Do I Know if I Have a Good Personal Injury Case?

The only objective way to determine whether you have a strong personal injury case or place an estimated level of compensation on your claim is to discuss the matter with an experienced Madison personal injury attorney. He or she will investigate, evaluate, and give you an opinion on your situation. While no attorney can guarantee you a positive income or a certain amount of damages in your case, a personal injury lawyer who has handled many similar claims over the years is a fairly good judge of how these types of cases are handled and how they are likely to be resolved.

Generally, your claim must demonstrate certain characteristics in order to constitute a valid personal injury claim. For instance, you must have suffered an actual injury that is documented in your medical records. Likewise, the other party must have acted negligently, or without reasonable care, in causing the accident that led to your injuries. If there are doubts about a person’s negligence, then you may have a weaker personal injury claim. Finally, you must prove that the accident resulting from the person’s negligence actually caused your injuries, in that there was not another intervening cause that resulted in your injuries. Without evidence of these basic elements, you are not likely to have a strong personal injury case.

Every personal injury case is completely different, and whether or not the claim is potentially successful depends on a wide variety of different factors. The existing evidence of the other party’s fault, the degree to which you may have contributed to the cause of the accident, preexisting injuries or medical conditions, the severity of your injuries, and the duration of your injuries all can alter the outcome of a personal injury case.
