At Daniel Stark, we get a lot of calls every year from Texas accident victims wanting answers to their injury claim questions. Although these conversations begin in different ways, they often end up at the same question: Do I have a case? Although that questions may seem simple, it’s not as straightforward as you might think. There are a number of factors to consider, many of which you can consider before you even give us a call.
Although every case is different, if you can answer the following three questions in the affirmative, then you may have a personal injury case.
- Was someone else at fault for your accident? If you were the at-fault party in your accident, you probably don’t have much of a claim against the other driver. However, if the accident occurred due to someone else’s negligence, then you may have an injury claim.
- Did you sustain injuries in the accident? It seems obvious that an injury claim would require injuries, but it’s still a key factor to consider when determining whether or not you have a case.
- Do you expect you will need medical attention or incur other expenses due to your injuries? The goal of an injury claim is to recover financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. If you expect to have such expenses, you may have an injury claim.
Although the above three questions are good initial qualifiers for accident victims, we still strongly recommend you speak with a Texas personal injury attorney before making any decisions involving your injury claim. It’s worth a call to be able to take your next steps with confidence.
