Introduction

Accidents causing injuries are a common occurrence in our daily lives. Besides auto accidents, we may suffer injuries in accidents at home, at business premises or on streets and sidewalks. Injuries may also be caused by carelessness of doctors. You can protect yourself by hiring Warren Law Firm if you suffer an injury as a result of an accident.

Evaluating Your Claim

To determine whether you have a claim, Warren Law Firm will consider whether another person's wrongful conduct caused your loss. The two most common kinds of wrongful conduct are negligence and intentional misconduct.

Negligence is the most common. The law holds individuals responsible for their own carelessness. For example, drivers who neglect to stop for stop signs or doctors who fail to follow established medical protocols.

Recovery for intentional misconduct may result if someone has deliberately hurt you. For example, if someone has deliberately hit you without your permission, or detained you against your will.

What is Your Injury Worth?

Warren Law Firm can help put a dollar value on your injury. You are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and the cost of repairing your property. You are also entitled to compensation for any pain, disfigurement, physical handicap, embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life, mental distress, emotional pain and other psychological injuries.

Finding Sources of Compensation

The time, effort and expense of a lawsuit are not ordinarily worthwhile if the person responsible for your injury does not have sufficient assets or insurance to pay for your damages. Warren Law Firm can help you determine what assets or insurance are available to compensate you.

You can bring an action against everybody who caused your injury. For example, if a negligent person injures you in the course of working for someone else, that employer might be responsible as well. Other parties potentially responsible for an auto accident may include the owner of a vehicle driven by someone else.

Preliminary Interview and Investigation

Your lawyer will carefully interview you to learn the facts of the accident, who is responsible, the extent of your injuries and the amount of your loss. After the initial interview, your lawyer will obtain medical records, interview witnesses, obtain police reports and other information to help prove your claim. We will visit you at home or in the hospital for a consultation.

Negotiating a Settlement

Warren Law Firm makes every attempt to settle your claim with the person who harmed you or their insurance company. We will usually have several rounds of negotiations with the insurance company. Sometimes we will try a more structured negotiating session with a trained mediator. The decision about whether to settle your claim is ultimately up to you.

Filing a Lawsuit

If a lawsuit is necessary, Warren Law Firm will prepare the documents necessary to file your claim with the court and gather the evidence needed to prove your claim at trial. The process of gathering evidence is called discovery. It ordinarily includes exchanging relevant documents, answering written questions, known as interrogatories, and orally questioning witnesses under oath before trial in depositions.

If not settled, your case will go to trial after the completion of pretrial discovery. It may take months or years to set a trial date. Most cases that go to trial are decided by juries. However, your case may be decided by a judge in come circumstances.

Conclusion

Others may be financially responsible for your injuries. In the event of injury, hire Warren Law Firm as soon as possible. It is important to act quickly to preserve your rights to compensation from those who caused your injuries.
