Important Steps to Take when Initiating a Personal Injury Lawsuit
After you’ve been injured, it’s critical that you begin keeping a detailed record of the surrounding events. Equipped with your thorough records, our lawyers are able to begin investigating the circumstances immediately. Following your injury or accident, make sure to take pictures of any item or scene that’s relevant, such as the wet floor that you slipped on or your vehicle’s damage. In addition to photographic evidence, you should obtain the contact information of any witnesses and file appropriate accident reports.
It can even mean things that are easily overlooked such as saving the shoes you were wearing at the time, preserving the broken bottle that injured you, or taking a photo of the wet floor you slipped on. After doing this, contact us.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take?
The duration of a personal injury lawsuit can vary from case to case. This makes it impossible to give a concrete answer about how long the entire process will take. Some cases can take as little as six months whereas others can take years to get settled. Many personal injury cases get resolved before going to trial through a settlement outside of court. Going to trial is a long process, so settling is usually in the best interest of both parties. The whole thing can be unpredictable, but an experienced personal injury attorney will do everything they can to make sure the end result is what their client deserves.
How Much Compensation Can You Get From a Personal Injury Case?
Just as there is no concrete answer for the length of a personal injury case, there is no concise answer regarding how much compensation you can get. No two cases are the same, and several factors go into determining the value of a claim. The extent of your injuries, medical expenses, and other damages are all taken into consideration when determining how much your claim is worth. You may be able to recover compensation for:
Pain and Suffering
Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Loss of Companionship and Consortium

How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
The value of a personal injury case depends on several factors, such as the accident’s severity, the seriousness of your injuries, and insurance limits, among other things. The primary driver behind case value is how much the plaintiff could get in the damages.
Many of these factors may not have a value that can be appropriately articulated. Still, an experienced attorney will have a general understanding of a case's value after hearing all the facts. Personal injury attorneys also work hard to get their clients the most in damages, so it is a good idea to speak with an attorney immediately after you’ve suffered a personal injury where another party is at fault.
Your Role in Personal Injury Litigation
When you’re the client in a personal injury case, there are a few ways you can protect yourself and your case, including:
Don’t admit fault for your injury
Continue getting treated by your doctor
Document any ups and downs you encounter because of your injury
Give your attorney any documentation you have that can help your case: police report, insurance documents, and photos or videos of your injuries or the accident scene, among other things.
Personal Injury Settlement
Most personal injury cases end up in settlements where your attorney and the opposing counsel will agree on the damages you’ll receive to cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses resulting from your injury. Typically, the process involves your attorney and opposing counsel going back and forth until they reach a dollar amount suitable to your condition.
