If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you will have suffered unnecessarily due to another person’s recklessness or negligence. This is not fair, and it’s why you have the right to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. If you are successful, you will be able to gain back damages for the out-of-pocket costs such as medical bills. In addition, you may be able to gain punitive damages for the pain and suffering caused.
If you are considering filing a personal injury claim, you may be hesitant because you believe you’ll have to pay upfront legal fees. It’s important that you understand the fee structure before you pursue a claim. You can do this by having a free consultation where you can discuss your case and the fees involved.
