If you sustain an injury from an accident that was not your fault, consult with an attorney skilled in the area of personal injury. They will be able to tell you whether or not you have a case. Typically, most lawyers look for three things:
- Liability (whose fault was it?)
- Damages (did plaintiff suffer damages great enough to justify a lawsuit?)
- Coverage (does the person at fault have good insurance or a lot of assets?).
Bring as much information as you can to your consultation.
