Take the First Steps

A serious accident or injury can leave your world spinning. Even if you believe you have a solid case for a lawsuit, it can be difficult to know how to get started.

We can help…

Steps to Take

AFTER AN INJURY, ACCIDENT, OR ILLNESS

Seek Medical Attention

Your first step if you have suffered an injury is to receive the medical care you need. Be sure to keep detailed records of any care provided and the costs associated with it.

Collect Evidence

Anything that can point to who caused the accidentcan be useful when you file a lawsuit. In addition, photographs and other evidence related to the damages caused can help.

Take Notes

Keep careful track of everything that happened to you after the incident, including medical bills and any lost work or wages.

Gather Witnesses

It is a good idea to get the names and contact information for anyone who witnessed your accident or can provide evidence to support your claim.

Contact an Attorney

As soon as you can, get in touch with our firm for a free case evaluation. We can help you with every stage of the process and ensure you are treated fairly.

Based on Your Case Evaluation,

OUR ATTORNEYS CAN:

Investigate Your Case

After your free consultation, we can investigate your case further. Depending on the type of case, we may analyze the police report, examine the accident scene, or interview witnesses.

Work with the Insurance Company

We can present our findings to the insurance company and negotiate with them on your behalf for a fair settlement. In most cases, their first offer is much less than you actually deserve.

File a Lawsuit If Necessary

If we cannot reach a fair settlement with the insurance company, we can take them to court and handle all aspects of the lawsuit. We can also sue other responsible parties to ensure you receive what you deserve.

How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

Even if you were hurt very badly, you may not have a valid claim for a personal injury lawsuit.

There are three basic questions which can help assess the viability of your case:

  1. Did you suffer a personal injury?
  2. Was another person or entity’s negligence the direct cause of your injuries?
  3. Does your case have recoverable damages?

The best way to answer these questions is to schedule a free case evaluation with our team at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton.

Our attorneys can assess your case and determine whether you can collect compensation by filing a lawsuit.

 

Terms to Understand

Personal Injury

In legal terms, an injury covers almost any type of physical, emotional, or financial damage. While a lawsuit may help you pay for damages to your property, a personal injury lawsuit is only applicable if you have suffered injuries to your body or psyche.

Negligence

When a person or entity fails to act with a reasonable level of care, this is referred to as negligence. If their negligent actions cause injury to someone else, they are legally responsible – or liable – for those injuries.

Recoverable Damages

As a legal term, “damages” refers to a sum of moneyawarded to an injured individual to compensate them for their losses. If the liable party has no assets, you won’t be able to recover damages from them and should likely not pursue a lawsuit.

I APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT…
