We Have The Answers You're Looking For

  • Who will be held accountable for my accident?

    Determining who should be held accountable after an accident is one of the first and most important jobs your attorney will complete. Because any number of factors could have contributed to the accident – from negligence to recklessness to a product defect – it’s our job to assess every detail recalled in the incident, reconstruct the scene of the accident, and ultimately determine who is at fault. The at-fault party will then be held accountable for your accident and any injuries that ensued.

  • What is liability and what does it prove?

    In order to pursue a claim under your State’s personal injury laws, you will most likely need to prove “liability.” Liability simply refers to the at-fault party involved in the accident. Once a liable party has been identified, it will be responsible for covering the damages that resulted from the accident. Determining liability, however, can be a complex process and will often hinge on proving “negligence.”

  • What is negligence and what does it prove?

    In addition to identifying the at-fault party, you will also need to be able to prove “negligence.” In the most general sense, negligence refers to whether or not a person has acted outside of the scope of reasonable care to prevent injury or harm to another person. Speak with an attorney to determine what evidence is needed to prove that the party’s negligence directly resulted in the injury or property damage.

  • How much is my case worth?

    Every case is different and to give a ballpark value could actually be counterproductive. Every case must be carefully assessed: there are many working parts in a personal injury matter and we would be happy to determine how those working parts can increase or diminish the potential value of your claim. Things like negligence, liability, injury severity, property damage, and more can all be relevant factors when determining the potential value.
