Unfortunately, life isn’t always perfect. Accidents happen and bad things happen to good people. Filing a lawsuit may be the proper course of action after a slip and fall, car accident, medical malpractice or any other event which has left you injured physically, emotionally, and financially.
The first question people often ask after they’ve suffered an injury or loss is, “Do I have a case to file a lawsuit?” While speaking with an attorney is the best way to determine if you have a case, the following points may help you decide if you should consider filing a lawsuit.
- Have you suffered injuries or an illness?
An emotional or physical injury or illness resulting from another party’s negligence is commonly grounds to file a lawsuit.
- Did you suffer permanent damage?
If another party has caused permanent physical damage like scarring or physical disabilities, or if you’ve incurred a permanent health complication, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Did you miss work?
Filing a lawsuit can help you recover lost wages as a result of an injury, disability or illness that prevented you from working.
- When did the event occur?
The clock is ticking from the moment you’ve suffered an injury or loss. Acting now can mean the difference between receiving compensation that makes you whole and not having a case because too much time has passed.
