How Do You Know If You Have a Viable Personal Injury Case?
Interviewer: What are some of the basic factors that would tell people that they may have a case or they may not have a case and how much they might be able to get?
The Primary Factor in a Personal Injury Case Is Injury
Bill: The basic factor obviously is an injury. No matter what anyone says if you are hurt and you think it is someone’s at fault you may have a case. For example, never gauge an injury case by the amount of damage to the car. We don’t represent cars. We represent people. Even in a very slow collision with little or no damage a person can be hurt.
Interviewer: If there is little or no damage to their car case can a person recover?
Bill: Yes. As long as they have been hurt and they weren’t at fault they will recover. I do these cases every day.
Interviewer: So there’s a fundamental difference between, what, permanent injuries and injuries that will be recovered from?
Bill: Yes in terms of the amount of money they get.
The Permanency of an Injury Sustained in an Accident Affects the Compensation
Interviewer: So the level of injury is one factor in how much a person may be able to get from a case. What are some other factors that are important?
Bill: The permanency of the injury and the extent of the injury, but primarily the permanency of the injury will affect the amount of the settlement substantially.
