Personal Injury Claims & Lawsuits
Victims of wrongful injury, or family members of loved ones wrongfully killed may be able to take legal action, known as a personal injury claim or lawsuit. In this type of legal action, the victim would be the plaintiff and the party liable for the injury or death is the defendant. Personal injury claims are typically successful when the plaintiff can show:
- The defendant’s connection to the situation or product that led to the injury
- Evidence that the defendant’s action or inaction led to the injury
- Proof of actual injuries and other losses suffered because of the wrongful action
Calculating a Possible Settlement
The value of a personal injury settlement is calculated by considering the following factors:
- Total cost of property damage
- Total cost of medical expenses (present and future)
- Other economic losses, such as lost wages
- Noneconomic damages, such as “pain and suffering”
- Punitive damages
The value of an injury claim differs greatly from case to case. The value of a settlement will typically increase depending on the level of negligence and severity of the injuries. If a fair settlement cannot be reached outside of court, Crary Buchanan has never been afraid of trial, and will take the case to court in hopes of securing a favorable verdict.
No Win, No Fee Policy
Many people might shy away from obtaining an attorney for their personal injury claim for fear of the cost. At Crary Buchanan, our personal injury fees are typically contingent on your monetary recovery. In other words, you do not pay us attorney fees unless we win your case. With the “no recovery, no fee” model, you do not have to worry about paying us up-front, because our fees are computed as a percentage of your recovery.
How does the process work?
The process is fairly straightforward with personal injury claims. If you or someone you know was injured because of the negligence of another, you should contact a personal injury attorney near you as soon as possible. With most personal injury claims, there is a two year statute of limitations, meaning any legal action must be taken within two years from the date of the injury.
If an attorney accepts your case, they will help you file a formal complaint to start the legal process. At this point, your attorney will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the defendant outside of court. If the defendant refuses to comply or offer fair compensation, your attorney could pursue going to trial where a judge and jury would decide the outcome.
