Is Your Personal Injury Claim Worth Pursuing?, Elko, Nevada

At any time, someone else’s carelessness can cause an accident, potentially altering your life for years to come. When you’ve been hurt by someone else’s negligence, personal injury law gives you the right to pursue compensation for your losses, including your medical expenses and emotional trauma. Knowing whether you have a strong case can help you decide whether your personal injury claim is worth pursuing.

How to Decide Whether You Have a Strong Personal Injury Case

Are Your Injuries Severe?

personal injuryMedical expenses are the foundation of any personal injury claim, and you’re entitled to compensation for any out-of-pocket losses you’ve paid. Serious injuries often result in massive medical expenses, especially if you need long-term care or rehabilitation. On the other hand, if your injuries were very minor and didn’t require more than a quick doctor’s visit, filing a personal injury claim may not be worthwhile.

Can You Prove Liability?

Proving that the other party is responsible is key to a successful personal injury claim. Sometimes, establishing liability is relatively straightforward, but it’s not unusual for insurance companies to blame victims for their own injuries. Fortunately, the best personal injury attorneys usually have professional investigators and other resources in their networks.

What Is Your Attorney’s Opinion?

A personal injury case can help you achieve justice, but it’s important not to let your emotions dictate your legal strategy. After evaluating the circumstances of your injury and the extent of your losses, a personal injury attorney can provide objective, professional insight on whether the claim is worth pursuing.
